What is a Bare Root Fruit Tree?
A Bare root fruit tree is a 2-3 year old fruit tree that 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 its environment before the warmth of spring comes.

 

Optimize Shipping: Shipping is calculated by box size. We can fit up to 8 bare-root fruit trees in a box. Multi-budded fruit trees and Jujube trees will count as 2 due to branching. Optimize your shipping by ordering multiple trees.

Potted:

  • The trees are approximately 2 years old.
  • The trees measure 18"-36" tall.
  • Ships in a 4"x4"x9" tree pot with potting mix.

Bare Root:

  • 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.
  • 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.
