Fruit Tree Varieties
New selection of fruit trees available around mid-January to February of each new year and are available while supplies last. Selection varies by store.
We select only the best bareroot fruit tree varieties from Dave Wilson Nursery. And to ensure your success in planting, growing and ultimately harvesting fruit from your bareroot fruit tree, we first trim away any damaged branches ourselves, pot them, in-store, using the best planting mix and the right amount of fertilizer—all to give your fruit tree every advantage prior to you planting it. The pots we use are biodegradable, so that all you have to do is poke a few holes in the pot at planting time and plant it directly in the ground.
3 Types of Fruit Trees:Choose the right tree for your backyard orchard. Please note, that some varieties may only be available at select locations. .

Ultra Dwarf Fruit Tree
It’s not uncommon for today’s home gardener to have a confined or smaller space to work within. Many of us are even limited to a balcony or patio space to grow our favorite fruits and veggies, eliminating the idea of growing a fruit tree. The ability to grow an Ultra Dwarf Fruit Tree is now an option. Reaching anywhere from 5’ to 8’ tall, these small trees produce abundant, standard-sized fruits that taste far better than anything you can purchase at your local grocery store.Selection Includes:
- Ambrosia Apple - Unlike any other apple it has a sweet, honeyed flavor. And a few other unique qualities:
- A naturally low acid content slows browning from happening once it is cut (use lemon juice to slow this in other apple varieties)
