Rhode Island Greening Apple Tree


Rhode Island Greening is an old cultivar and it is famous for its culinary and dessert qualities. The fruit has juicy flesh and rich flavor. The tree comes into bearing late and it considered as a biennial bearer, however, good care and timely thining makes it an annual bearer with moderate to high yield. It is the official fruit of the State of Rhode Island.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
