BAREROOT APPLE TREES FOR SPRING 2024 SHIPPING


The apple varieties listed below are orchard favorites and highly recommended for fresh eating. Many of these varieties also make fantastic cider due to their high sugar content and ample acidity. I've highlighted a few standouts in the "Also Cider!" section.

I offer one hint as you go about your selection: Hone in on the 'ugly' apples. How did such unremarkable fruits find hospitable homes for centuries without fail? Flavor, my friend, flavor.

Product Details

Unknown Parentage, New Jersey, 1700s

If you're questioning the suitability of the name "Bullock's Pippin," you're not alone. Prominent nurseryman and pomologist Andrew Downing in 1845 declared the name as demeaning and unworthy of such a splendid fruit.

Unfortunately Downing also suggested a problematic name - 'American Golden Russet.' Since many other russeted apples were also called 'Golden Russet' (ie, 'Golden Russet of Western New York' or 'Golden Russet of thy Neighbor Cyrus'), the uniqueness of Bullock's Pippin dissolved into a puddle of 'Golden Russet' ambiguity.

Bullock's Pippin delivers a fantastic honeysweet flavor in a firm, crisp apple. Though not as juicy as modern cultivars, Bullock''s Pippin releases plenty of nectar as you chew, and you will savor every drop!

Bullock trees are vigorous, scab-resistant, precocious, and a pleasure to have in the low-maintenance orchard.
