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.

Premium Size:

  • The Premium sized trees, measured from the top of the root ball, are 24-36” tall.
  • Within a month of delivery, we suggest repotting into a larger (10-12" diameter) container.
  • Like citrus trees, deciduous trees appreciate a well-aerated growing medium that retains moisture and also drains well.  Provide full sun, regular feeding, and good drainage to keep the tree happy and productive.

 

Bare Root:

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

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.

 

  • This fruit tree is shipped dormant and bare-rooted.
