Our field grown apple and pear trees from our fields are dug and in our sales yards!
They produced fruit last fall, so expect a bountiful crop this year too! Check out our varieties – there’s a flavor for everyone.
Fuji – mild sweet flavor, dense flesh is perfect for fresh eating and baking. It ripens very late and stores well for 3+ months. It is semi-dwarf.
Jonagold- sweet yet tart delicious apple used for fresh eating, cooking, juicing & making hard cider. It ripens late and stores well for 1-2 months. It is semi-dwarf.
Liberty- crisp, juicy and sweet like a McCintosh, but more tart in flavor. Used for fresh eating, juicing and apple sauce. It ripens late and stores well for 1-2 months. Has exceptional disease resistance.
Macoun – sweet, juicy apple best eaten fresh off the tree since its storage life is short. Also good for cooking, canning and drying. It ripens late and is semi-dwarf.
Royal Gala – is a heavy producer that ripen late summer. Look forward to crisp, sweet fruit! It is a dwarf and a mid-season bloomer.

The 15 gallon container fruit trees came in last week – here’s a sampling:
APPLES-Golden Delicious, Red Delicious, Honey Crisp, Gala
CHERRIES- Rynbrandt (7 gal.), White-Gold.
PEARS- Moonglow, 20th Century
PEACHES- Belle of Georgia, Blushing Star, Red Haven Dwarf
PLUMS – B&B Stanley, Superior Fruiting Plum 2.5-3” caliper
Plant in full sun with well drained soil that is rich in organic matter. Prune apples and pears late winter to open the tree canopy allowing light and air circulation, encourage vigorous new growth and bring down the height. Cherries should be pruned in the summer when the weather is hot. Peaches can be pruned late winter/early spring.
Apples- all listed need a pollinator except golden delicious.
Pears- Bartlett and Moonglow will pollinate each other. Shinseiki is self-fruitful.
Cherries- White gold is self-fruitful, Rynbrandt needs a pollinator.
Plums- Stanley is self-fruitful, Superior needs a pollinator.
