SKU: Aday Category: Tag:


Dayton is a very large apple with a conic and lobed shape (like a giant red delicious). Highly flavored and sweet. If left long on the tree it will get some watercore (pockets of pure sugar) which looks odd but does not affect the flavor. Excellent apple. Immune to scab. Harvest in Walden is beginning of September. Developed in the PRI program and patented in 1985 (expired). Long picking period is great for homesteads.

Available Services:

Tree Pruning
Proper pruning ensures a healthier tree, improves fruit size and increases fruit yield. Fruit trees should be pruned during winter dormancy. We’ll prune individual trees or an entire orchard.

We offer services for those who would like assistance in planting and/or maintaining trees and help with everything from staking trees to trellising grapes and berries. We will show you the proper procedures for caring for your home orchard or do the maintenance for you.

Custom Grafting
In addition to grafting the fruit trees we sell, we also offer custom grafting services. We can graft a hard to find cultivar, a reproduction from your own tree, or we can graft onto an existing tree on your property. New trees can be sent right away or grown a year here.

We do site visits, help with soil and other tests, and planning. Included are written plans for the implementation and day to day operations of your future of existing plantings. Fees vary according to the extent of the operation. Contact us for further info.
