Sweet Sixteen is an exceptional apple. You want to let it get fully ripe to obtain the cherry notes, but good at any stage after it blushes. Likes extra calcium in the soil. Quite a vigorous tree and takes a year or two extra to bear. Very heavy crops. Cold hardy at least to zone 3. Keeps about 3 months in our cooler. Ripens in Walden in late September most years.

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.
