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.

I’m forever grateful to the late Michael Phillips for first introducing me to Sandow at his Lost Nation Orchard tasting barn. This was the first time I'd eaten an apple with an intense raspberry flavor, and its unexpected delightfulness combined with Michael’s glowing aura translated to one of my greatest apple experiences. I miss Michael's exuberance, and am so grateful for the knowledge he shared.
Though its raspberry flavor hasn't been as pronounced in my first harvests, Sandow's sweet, fruity flavor and intensely crisp, juicy texture have been good enough to make me wonder: why aren't there more Sandow trees in the world?
Similar to Northern Spy, Sandow trees are vigorous and scab tolerant, though Sandow is considerably more precocious.
Harvest: Mid/Late October
