What is a Bare Root Fruit Tree?
A Bare root fruit tree is a 2-3 year old fruit tree which has been dormant for the winter. It is delivered to you without soil. The best time to plant bare root fruit trees is the end of the winter season. This gives your tree time to acclimate to it's environment before the warmth of spring comes.

 

Tips:

 

  • Susceptible to fire blight and codling moth so seasonal maintenance is a must.
  • Fruit should be thinned to one per spur.
  • Plant 2 varieties for best pollination.
  • Unpruned trees will reach 2/3 of standard (about 12-18').
  • By pruning, keep any tree to any size.
  • This fruit tree is shipped dormant and bare-rooted.

  • The trees are approximately 2 years old.
  • Our trees are measured by trunk caliper.
  • Trunk size may vary slightly based on availability during the season.
  • The average trunk size is 1/2"-5/8".

All of our bare root fruit trees will come pruned so that the reduced root mass is balanced with the canopy to maximize grower success. Our bare root fruit trees are headed back to fit in the 60" tall box that they will ship in. Branches are seldom removed during this process unless dead or damaged and are only reduced to fit the tree in the box so that the grower can decide what branches to keep or remove. This is done in a way that will allow the home grower to continue to grow the tree as a central leader or prune the tree to an open center.

 

 The tree will be shipped dormant and bare-rooted.
