Goldrush grafted apple tree
Over the years we have grafted and grown thousands of trees for our own farm, and now we have a limited quantity available for you too! Ready to plant and begin bearing as early as next year with proper care. These trees are dwarf, early bearing, highly productive and require some support, either a stake, trellis, or espalier on a wall. The full dwarf trees can be trained to 8- 12 feet tall, and the semi-dwarf 10-15 feet. We have a few few larger two year trees and smaller one year trees. We plant our own trees at the smaller size, and they frequently top the 8 foot trellis the first season.
Goldrush is one of the best apples ever bred! Very easy to grow, early fruiting, and easy to prune. It is totally scab resistant for us. It is a very late apple, ripening only in late october. At that point it is very hard and sweet/tart, yellow with a red blush. It stores until the next season, reaching a peak sweetness in midwinter. Super cider variety as well.
If you purchase trees we will assume you will pick them up on Saturday at the Ithaca Farmers Market unless you request to pick them up at the farm. We are not set up to ship plants, sorry!
