Apple tree loaded with apples We specialize in the production of hardy apple trees. Apples are created by grafting a piece of the variety desired onto a rootstock. The variety produces the fruit you desire while the rootstock controls tree size, productivity, earliness of bearing and hardiness. We graft our trees onto Russian seedlings such as 'Beautiful Arcade' and 'Antonovka' These trees are very hardy, free standing, productive and grow to approximately 5m (16ft) at maturity.

We no longer mail order fruit trees as shipping rates are now charged by volume, making larger items expensive to ship. We can make arrangements to ship trees with the understanding that you will be charged at cost plus packing.

Due to Federal regulations we cannot ship fruit trees to British Columbia
