Apple Descriptions for our larger collection can be found by clicking on APPLE TREES – NEW GRAFTS below.
Our apple trees are organically grown and hand-grafted onto extremely hardy seedling rootstocks, which will withstand temperatures of -40°F and colder. This standard rootstock often means a large, prolific, and long-lived tree. A standard tree can live well over one hundred years and provide 10 to 30 bushels of fruit a year at maturity. Dwarf trees sold in many nurseries and catalogs may languish in this climate or die outright. See the Rootstocks category for a list of the rootstocks we use.
Please be aware we grow and propagate all the listed cultivars, but they rotate in availability year to year. With advanced notice we can graft any of these varieties regardless if we were going to carry them that year. Additionally, we can custom graft nearly any variety that is still in existence, or from wood from your own tree. We can custom graft a tree for you. This can be from your wood, or from one of the 600 plus varieties growing in our preservation orchard. Cost is 12.00 per new graft, which you need to grow out yourself. If we grow it out for you, the cost is 35.00. To order one, contact us through the “contact us” box and we can talk.
