Tree Information: Size, Rootstock

Our apple trees for sale include varieties that are disease resistant, heirloom, used for cider, and many more. Moreover, our bareroot apple trees are 1-2 years old, 4′-6′ tall, and have an average caliper/diameter of ½”.

Apple trees, except for seedlings, have two parts. The first part has the scion which is above ground and responsible for the fruit’s characteristics and disease resistance. The second part is the rootstock, which is under ground and responsible for the size, cold hardiness, and partly the disease resistance. In fact, we use different rootstocks such as dwarf (Bud 9 and G.41), semi-dwarf (EMLA 7, EMLA 111, G.890, Bud 118), and standard (Antonovka seedlings). Learn more about our rootstocks.Apple Rootstocks
