Trunk Size
The vast majority of our trees will ship with a 5/8” trunk diameter, however size may vary slightly based on availability during the season. If they vary, most are larger (3/4” or 1”), and rarely some are smaller (1/2”).

Trees Begin Shipping in mid-December!
Our trees ship on a first-come, first-served basis as soon as they come into stock in late December. If you are unable to plant your trees right away, read our instructions on heeling in your trees.

Dwarf on Geneva 935 rootstock.

  • Zones: 3-8
  • Chill hours: 800-1,000
  • Harvest: August 3 - August 18
  • Looks: Striped red over yellow skin. White flesh. The color his highly variable and becomes mostly red with a pink cast if grown in good light.
  • Personality: Fruit is crisp and juicy with an aromatic flavor.
  • Facts of note: Stores very well, 5 months or more. Great sub-acid flavor and crispness. Winter hardy, vigorous tree, introduced by the University of Minnesota in 1990, that requires heavy thinning.
  • Pollination: Requires a pollenizer. Empire, Gala, Granny Smith, Red Delicious and McIntosh are good choices.

Apples are generally late blooming. Need full sun, well-drained soil, and moderate fertility. Thin fruit to maximize quality and size. Susceptible to codling moth, apple scab, powdery mildew, and gophers. Generally cross-fertile, which means that the variety is not pollinated by itself, but by a different variety of the same fruit. Three or more varieties are best. Harvest 3rd year.

Dwarf apple trees are grafted onto either Geneva 935 or M-27 which are extremely dwarfing rootstocks for apples. M-27 trees are dwarfed to 6-8 ft. and Geneva 935 are dwarfed to 8-10 ft. and are heavier bearing. Both are ideal for high density planting, for small spaces in the garden and are good for container growing. Small root systems and young trees may need staking.

Check out our Fruit Tree Harvest Chart to plan for successive harvests.

Please Note: Although most of our bare-root trees arrive to our warehouse in mid-December, there are a few varieties that will not arrive until mid-January. If you order any of those varieties along with varieties that arrive in mid-December, your order will be delayed for shipment until mid-January. If you'd like us to split your shipments, please contact us at (888) 784-1722 or orderdesk@groworganic.com. Additional shipping charges will apply.

Shipping Information

Bare Root Trees - Ship up to 10 Bare Root Trees for $29.99!
We ship our bare root trees on a first-come, first-served basis beginning in mid-December. We are unable to delay shipping due to many factors, most importantly limited storage and our warm California climate which causes bare root trees to break dormancy much sooner than in colder areas (bare root trees must be dormant to best survive shipping). If you are unable to plant your tree(s) right away, read our instructions on heeling in trees. All of our bare root trees come with free professional pruning, which will put the tree's stored energy first into root growth rather than leaf production. Our bare root trees ship in special boxes with their roots bagged in moist sawdust to help ensure their survival during transit. Up to 10 trees can fit in a box (due to their size, nut and multi-graft trees count as 2). Each box ships for $29.99 via FedEx Ground (or FedEx Home Delivery) to the lower 48 states. Bare root trees cannot ship via USPS, and cannot be shipped to P.O. boxes. We are unable to ship our bare root trees to Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Guam. Bare root trees cannot be combined with potted trees.

Shipping Weight: 31.73 lbs. Dimensions: 59"L x 11"W x 11"H


Limited Guarantee for Dormant Trees & Plants (When Planted in the Ground by April 1st)

Claim Deadline is June 1st (with the exception of persimmon trees, which have a deadline of June 15th)! Claims placed after June 1st (or June 15th for persimmon trees) will be denied.

What We Guarantee
Our only guarantee is that your dormant tree/plant will arrive in good, viable condition and will leaf out by May 15th (historically 98% of our trees do). This guarantee is only available to customers who purchased their tree/plant directly from us, and who planted their tree/plant in the ground by April 1st (or temporarily in a pot if the ground in their zone was still frozen solid).

What We Cannot Guarantee
We cannot guarantee that your tree/plant remains alive & healthy, or bears fruit, as there are too many variables beyond our control in order to do so (i.e. soil preparation, planting, fertilization, weed & pest control, adequate irrigation and/or drainage, chill hours, compatible hardiness for your zone, proper choice of pollinator, etc).

How to Request a Credit
If your tree/plant does not leaf out by May 15th, please perform a scratch test by checking for green under the bark, a few inches over the graft. If the scratch test reveals a brown cambium, that means your tree/plant is dead or dying. Watch our video titled Bare Root (Dormant) Warranty on how to perform this simple test. If the scratch test revealed that your plant is dead or dying, pull it from the ground and take pictures of the entire tree/plant, including the roots. Submit your claim & pictures by using the Return an Item tool on our Customer Service page (or email us at helpdesk@groworganic.com) no later than June 1st (or June 15th for persimmon trees). We will review your claim and issue you a credit (not a refund) for the purchase price of your tree/plant (excluding shipping).*

(*) We reserve the right to not issue credit for items already replaced. We also reserve the right to require photographic evidence that the tree/plant was not killed by root rot, rodent or mechanical damage.


so far so good

I received this tree in Ohio last week. It came well packaged and secure from FedEx. I planted it and put a fence up and I'm certainly hopeful. It looks really good and has some buds on it. The "cuts" made by the company to trim down the tree from their field are nice sharp fine cuts. No "pinched" stems or "squeezed" stems from unsharp cutters. Yes, I've seen this and it's not good for the plant.

So far so good

I placed the order for both a honey crisp & a gala tree. They arrived very timely and in good shape. I watched the planting video and both are in the ground. Time will tell, but I feel the supplier did their part.

Beautiful, healthy fruit trees, excellent prices. Very happy!

I was ready to put in a mini orchard on my Oregon half-acre, and found that groworganic.com had the best selection of fruit trees and the lowest prices. The five trees arrived today, well packed and in wonderful condition. Roots and branches are strong and healthy. My daughter and I got them in the ground at once and we are looking forward to years of beauty and harvest.

Thank you, Peaceful Valley Farm Supply, for making our dream affordable. This was our first order from you, but it will definitely not be our last. Highly recommended company.
