Fruit Trees

ALL GRAFTED FRUIT TREES ARE SOLD OUT FOR FALL 2021 & SPRING 2022.

About Bare-Root Trees & Pricing

All our trees are grown in the field and dug up while dormant. We sell them as young 1-2 year old trees with often minimal branch training so you can choose the height and branching pattern you want. We follow strict organic growing practices and provide our trees with a living soil rich in organic matter, minerals, beneficial bacteria, and symbiotic fungi.

Trees are priced according to size, ranging from $25 – $35 between 2-5′ tall. If you would like to reserve a tree, email thimblehillnursery@gmail.com and we will put your name on it. As noted, there are only a few of each variety, so we will confirm availability after your request. Trees are dug up early November for fall sales, and mid-late March for spring sales.

APPLES


SOLD OUT – gravenstein, M111

Ripening in early-mid September, this firm, crisp, juicy dessert and culinary apple makes legendary apple sauce, pies and cider. As a triploid, it requires two other apple varieties nearby. We have both a red and a green sport available.

SOLD OUT – Jonagold, M111

Heavy-cropping trees that produce large, honey-tart-flavoured, crisp green and red dessert apples. Originally these came from a cross between a Golden Delicious and a Jonathan apple, and ripens in mid-late September. Delicious for fresh eating, and cooked they hold their shape. These have profuse white blossoms in spring that make a gorgeous ornamental as well as consistent fruit producer. As a triploid, it cannot pollinize other trees, and needs at least two other apple varieties nearby for pollination.

SOLD OUT – Mutsu (aka Crispin), M111

These large, honey-flavoured Japanese apples are a cross between a Golden Delicious and an Indo apple. Crisp, juicy, there’s a subtle acidity and astringency to balance out the sweetness. While these apples are so large you’ll want a friend to share it with if eating fresh, they are excellent at holding their shape in baking and you’ll only need a couple to fill a deep-dish apple pie. They ripen in early October in most locations, and store well for several months. As a triploid, you’ll need two other apple varieties nearby as pollinizers.

SOLD OUT – Gala, M111

A familiar variety to most, these attractive apples have orange and red striped over a thin yellow skin, and a crisp and sweet flesh. They ripen in September, and because they keep so well – 6 months or more in good cold storage – they are popular around the world. While sometimes supermarket varieties might taste mild, fresh homegrown galas have a more punchy, pear-like flavour. Somewhat self-fruitful, they are a great all around apple.

Fuji, M111

Pink-speckled flush over yellow skin, these apples have dense, crisp, sweet and mildly acidic flesh. Delicious for fresh eating and baking, but a limited shelf life. As a late-season apple this one is recommended for full-sun locations with a longer season that avoids early fall frosts.

SOLD OUT – Esopus Spitzenburg, Semi-dwarf & Semi-Standard

Possibly one of the best fresh-eating apples out there, Spitzenburg’s is often described as having aromatic, complex, and sharp flavour with a buttery dense texture. It’s dynamic flavour profile makes excellent cider as well as apple pie, and it keeps well. This heirloom was discovered in the late 1700’s near Esopus, NY. As a late-season apple, it is best suited for parts of the interior with a longer growing season.
