Bare Root Fruit Trees Will Be Here Soon!

It's almost Bare Root fruit tree season and we will have some Sweet and Juicy varieties selected for our climate and growing conditions. 

Bare Root Fruit trees are younger trees, generally 2-3 years old, that have had the soil removed from their roots. This makes shipping and handling easier and less expensive. It also makes them easier to plant. Below is a photo showing one of our bare root trees with exposed roots.



Bare Root fruit trees are planted while still dormant, immediately upon receipt. Normal winter care consists of watering about once every 3-4 weeks to ensure the roots remain moist (not wet) through the winter months.

The list below shows what we expect to be available for immediate planting in the next few weeks.

  1. This Season we do not have the Variety Sugar Cane Jujube but we do have Li, a self-fertile jujube that does very well here in the Los Lunas, Nm area.
