Use fresh, canned, or dried into prunes. European varieties are easy to grow, self pollinated, good for higher elevations and cold micro–climates, and well suited to processing. Japanese varieties tend to have larger crops, are not generally self-pollinated, can be tricky to grow in areas with late frosts, but are superb for fresh eating. Lower elevation areas and valley growers may plant any variety.
All are semi–dwarf on Citation rootstock. Unpruned, semi–dwarf trees reach 3/4 of standard size (about 8'–14'). Trees are 2 years old, and should begin to fruit in their 4th year.
All our dormant trees (except Pecan trees) and berries come with a limited replacement guarantee.
PLEASE READ THIS IMPORTANT INFORMATION
When placing your bare root orders, please be aware that AS SOON as the trees/plants are available to ship (Dec. for trees, Jan. for plants), we will begin shipping IMMEDIATELY - no matter where you are located !!!
There are several factors why we must ship immediately:
ATTENTION "POLAR VORTEX" AFFECTED CUSTOMERS
When your order arrives, you should remove it from the outside elements before nightfall. If you will not be present at the destination when the order will be delivered, you should either ship the order to another location or make sure someone will be there to take care of your order.
While your order is hardy enough to withstand freezing temperatures in its box, you definitely should not leave it outside in sub-zero temperatures for days on end.
AS IMPORTANTLY, you then need to open the box, remove the trees/plants from their plastic bag, store them in a basement, cellar or garage, covering their roots with sand, dirt, sawdust or wood chips (do not use cedar that is toxic to the trees) and keep them moist until you are able to plant them in the ground in Spring.
Organic Gardening Resource Center - Your Source Since 1976!
Buy any 10 bare root fruit trees, and we'll ship them for FREE! (to continental US - Excludes potted fruit trees. Since Nut and Multi-graft trees are much larger, they count as 2 trees when calculating box capacity.)
We've lowered our flat rate shipping this year to just $20 per tree box (if ordering less than 10 trees or a full box)
