We would love to learn more about your fruit tree growing experience.

Trees are magical, they not only eat carbon which is changing our world, but also help us grow to be more caring. Plus let's face it, they are just so much fun! Planting and taking care of these magical trees is an adventure you can take with your community to create a healthier world for you and our Earth!

After a career in physics research at Cornell University, Surik Mehrabyan decided to start his own adventure and planted 80 fruit trees in his backyard, much like in his village in Armenia. After realizing that the world needs more care and trees, he and now his daughters have started helping others to start their own journeys, taking care not to harm the environment throughout the growing process and gifting people with these accessible, well cared for, magical trees.

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.

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

4-----3, 4, 5

5-----4, 5, 6

6-----5, 6, 7

7-----6

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
