There are many varieties of apple trees, all with taste, size, color, and harvest time variations. When selecting an apple tree, consider the taste. Do you prefer sweetness or tartness of the fruit? A good example of a sweet apple is the Honeycrisp, for a tart apple try the Granny Smith. A favorite apple for pie making is the Golden Delicious apple. Apple trees, in most cases, require a pollinator. Some apple trees have sterile pollen and thus need to be pollinated by another apple tree. When selecting a pollinator make sure the trees bloom at the same time so the bees and insects can spread the pollen from tree to tree. A great pollinator for most apple trees is the crabapple. The ornamental crabapple produces beautiful flowers and abundant pollen for neighboring apple trees.
All of the apple trees we offer in our apple tree nursery are grafted. Therefore there will be a bud union on every tree. The bud union is the location where the scion meets the rootstock. The bud union should not be buried in the ground when planting. Keep the bud union about 2 inches above the ground when planting. All of our apple tree offerings are displayed below.
