Malus pumila

Raintree Nursery specializes in offering superior, disease resistant apples for the backyard grower. We select varieties from around the world for their exceptional flavor and ease of growing, each with unique qualities to recommend it. We offer sturdy, well-rooted, 3-5 foot grafted trees on the best  root stocks.

We offer more than 75 apple varieties, many of them on rootstocks that give you  trees of different sizes.  Here is how you can find the apple tree that is best for you. Unless otherwise noted an Apple tree needs another apple tree of a different variety as a pollenizer.

Note that we have quite a few catagories of apple trees. In addition to clicking on a catagory, you can seach for terms to find the right tree. Among the terms to click on are Red Flesh Apples, Keeper Apples, Russetted Apples, Combo Apples, Early, Mid and Late Season Apples. We also have Triploid apples that  won't pollenize other varieties.

We offer three catagories of rootstocks that affect the ultimate size your tree will grow. Most people prefer the dwarf and semi dwarf size because they have lots of fruit and bear in a few years. Some people want a small tree for a limited space or a majestic full size tree.

Mini Dwarf (makes a  5-8' tree.) These are on EMLA 27 rootstock.

Dwarf and Semi Dwarf (makes a 10-17' tree) These dwarf trees are on EMLA 26 Dwarf  and EMLA 7 and MM106  Semi-Dwarf rootstocks.

Full Size (makes a tree 25' or more) These trees are on the standard size Antanovka  rootstock.

Gardeners can have apples off their trees from August through November, and they can enjoy the harvest until March or April, since many apple varieties keep for long periods without refrigeration. Ever since early American settlers took their favorite varieties of apples to their new homesteads, apples have been important in family meals.

The harvest from apple trees provides fresh and hard cider, classic American apple pies, stores of sauces, butters and other delicacies. 

Even if varieties are not scab resistant, many are still acceptable for the organic grower who doesn’t demand picture perfect fruit for cider or other uses. Also, even though some great selections might require more care, the result is worth the effort.

USDA Zones 4-9 unless otherwise noted.
