What is a Bare Root Fruit Tree?

1)    Bare Root Fruit trees have had the soil removed from their roots. This makes shipping and handling easier!


2)    Bare Root Fruit trees are younger trees, generally 2-3 years old. Fruit production  begins 2-3 years after planting.

3)    Bare Root Fruit trees are less expensive making them a good value when it comes to planting your backyard orchard!

4)    Bare Root Fruit trees are easier to plant.


Just dig a hole large and deep enough to accommodate the roots as in the photo below:


MAKE SURE you leave the graft union exposed 2” – 4” above the soil


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.
