Fruit trees are the perfect answer for health-conscious gardeners who wish to eat fresh, healthy and local. After all, what can be fresher – and more local – than juicy, nutritious fruit plucked from one’s own trees? Specialty rootstocks including dwarf and semi-dwarf types assure that trees will have good disease resistance and anchorage, and won’t overgrow the confines of an urban garden.

Please note that local weather and growing conditions including soil types, pH, elevation, frost-free days, microclimates and other variables should be considered when choosing fruit trees for your home orchard or landscape. Climate zone recommendations for each variety are general guidelines – best used in conjunction with advice from experts at your local independent garden center, university/county extension service, master gardener organization, botanical garden or horticultural society.

Our fruit trees are grown in #7 containers, a size that’s ideal for garden center sales. Trees are small enough to be portable and affordable, and big enough to begin producing fruit soon after they are established in garden, orchard or home landscape. We partner with Dave Wilson Nursery to offer you the finest quality and best assortment of fruit trees in the business. We containerize their expertly budded, field-grown, bare root trees in late winter and finish them to perfection in one season for your fall and/or spring garden center sales.

Established in 1938 and recognized today as a top supplier of specialty fruit and nut trees, Dave Wilson Nursery offers extensive online resources for gardeners. Invite your customers to learn more about Backyard Orchard Culture here.
