A taste of fall

Please join us up at the Depot for a free sampling of apples and pears. These are all the same cold hardy varieties we stock at the nursery as both potted and bare root trees. The trees include heirloom as well as modern types. We will discuss basic fruit tree location, planting and culture, including winter care. There will also be a sign up sheet for early discounted ordering of 2016 bare root fruit trees!

We’re offering 2 opportunities to sample, Thursday Oct 15th at 6 pm and again Saturday Oct 17th at 11 am. Here is a partial list of some of the varieties we’ll be sampling:

  • APPLES: Arkansas Black, Cortland, Golden Russet, Jonagold, McIntosh, Spartan, Winesap Winter Banana
  • PEARS: Anjou, Bartlett, Bosc, Red Anjou, Seckel
  • ASIAN PEARS: Shinseiki, 20th Century
