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

Macoun x Purdue 54-12, Geneva Ag Station, New York, 1972

If I had to grow just 1 tree, it would be Liberty.*

Liberty is a vigorous, disease-resistant variety that produces annual crops of delicious apples.

Liberty apples have a great flavor that is mainly sweet, yet fortified with a balancing tartness and pleasant aroma.

The apple is plenty crunchy, crisp and juicy - perfect for farmstands or u-pick orchards that covet a tasty, dependable apple that doesn't overripen quickly on the tree.

Brix: 14
Harvest: Early October
Flowering: Early/mid-Season

----
*This is a terrible idea! Apple trees (save the rare self-pollinating variety) require a different variety for adequate pollination. One should always cultivate at least 2 apple varieties that bloom at the same time to ensure satisfactory fruit set.

Additionally, since Liberty is a triploid variety, it will not pollinate other varieties. It is thus recommended to plant Liberty with at least 2 other non-triploid varieties that bloom at the same time to ensure that all 3 varieties set fruit. Darn you confusing apples!
