Each Fruit Salad tree is grafted with at least 3 of the 5 possible varieties. Enjoy three different fruits or varieties on one tree! Multi-grafted trees have three different varieties grafted onto one rootstock so you can enjoy more variety and extended harvests in one quarter the space. Its the perfect solution for smaller families, smaller spaces, container gardening and urban gardening. Trees are 2 years old and should begin to fruit in their 3rd to 5th year. Lovell rootstock is more tolerant of wet soils than Nemaguard. Also more cold hardy. Susceptible to nematodes in sandy soils. Lovell produces a standard sized tree, but by pruning you can keep your tree at any height.

To increase survival rate of grafts it is important not to let one graft overtake the tree. If the different fruit varieties (the limbs) are not well-spread on your trees, use a spreader to separate them. Always plant the smallest limb (the “weakest” bud) to the south/southwest to insure that it gets plenty of sun. Prune back the strongest growing varieties by 2/3. Prune back the weakest variety by 1/2 — or not at all. During the summer, watch the growth-rate of the smaller limbs to determine if pruning is necessary at that time. If the weakest variety is 1/2 the size of the others, it’s best not to cut it back. Prune back the more aggressive limbs. Summer-prune when necessary in order to let sunlight get to all the developing varieties. Keep even sunlight available to all the developing selections. After the third season, maintain the multi-budded tree so that each fruit-type grows in balance with the others.

Customer Reviews


WOW! I was only expecting 3 different fruits but got FIVE instead. 2 different peaches, apricot, plum, and nectarine. I highly recommend this grower because my tree came in EXCELLENT condition. I will probably buy another in a few years!

Produced fruit 6 months after being planted!

This tree has been great to us so far. It leafed out beautifully and produced the most delicious peaches I've ever tasted within 6 months of going in to the ground. All the grafts seem to have taken well. Looking forward to more!

Fruit Salad Tree

This is the perfect tree for our household. I love nectarines and plums, my husband loves peaches. The tree leafed out beautifully and, as predicted, one of the four grafts did not make it. We got a few fruit of each variety and they were the best I've ever tasted!
