Pre-Order for 2020

Mehrabyan Nursery is on a mission to bring delicious fruit trees to every home, orchard and farm. Coming from Armenia, our sunny country with a rich variety of bright, delicious and fragrant fruits, we wanted to share our love for growing fruit trees in our local community in Ithaca and beyond. 

 

Whether it's your first time buying a fruit tree or your tenth, we bring you carefully sourced, quality apples trees at affordable prices to make your fruit tree buying experience a joyful one.

Mehrabyan Nursery was created by Surik Mehrabyan. After a career in physics research at Cornell University, Surik  decided to start his own orchard and planted 80 fruit trees in his backyard in Ithaca, NY, much like in his home village in Armenia. 

Surik, his two daughters, and mother in the backyard of his Armenian village, Xushchi, in 1996.

Cross-Pollination/
Flowering Group

In order for a tree to bear fruit, it needs to be cross-pollinated by another tree that flowers around the same time. Some trees bloom early season (groups 1 and 2) so trees belonging to group 1 can be cross-pollinated only by those in groups 1 and 2. Below is a list of which groups can cross-pollinate one another. Cross-pollinating trees need to be planted within 50' of one another. If this is not possible for you, you can choose a self-fertile variety that can pollinate itself.

Climate/Hardiness

There are some trees that can do well in cold temperatures and others that will be damaged. This is why each tree has a hardiness zones range, e.g. 3-7 which indicates the corresponding zones it can grow in. The lower the number, the colder the temperatures. Trees with hardiness zone of 3-7 can grow in places that have a hardiness zone of 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, but not 2 since it would be damaged by the cold. You can calculate the hardiness zone with your zipcode here

Tree Size/Rootstock

The type of rootstock directly influences the size the tree will grow. While standard apple trees can produce larger crop, they are often harder to maintain and harvest which can make dwarf and semi-dwarf trees more appealing. On the shop page we have linked each rootstock with the size of the tree for your convenience. These are the sizes and their corresponding heights.

Dwarf Trees:  8-10 feet 

Semi-Dwarf: 12-17 feet 

Semi-Standard: 18-25 feet

Standard: 30 feet and up 

5-----4, 5, 6

6-----5, 6, 7

7-----6

1 ----- 1, 2
2-----1, 2, 3
3-----2, 3, 4

4-----3, 4, 5
