*PICKUP ONLY*

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, and reach full production of 1/2 to 1 bu. in 4 years with proper care.   These trees are dwarf, early bearing, highly productive and require some support, either a stake, trellis, or espalier on a wall.   They can be easily trained to 8- 12 feet tall, or allowed to reach 15 feet or so.  These are one year trees that were given the best conditions and most varieties are branched and 3-5 feet tall with good strong roots, potted up with feeder roots intact.  We transplant our own trees at this age, and they frequently top the 8 foot trellis the first season and make a few fruit the next year.  

Everyone should grow this apple!  High yields every year of delicious zesty apples, tart/sweet, flavor similar to macoun, classic apple, with hints of grape.  Pleasantly tart, crisp, not soft.   Naturally well formed trees bear early and annually despite heavy fruiting.   Easy to prune and very disease resistant, and it makes an excellent hard cider!  Mid season, late september.

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!
