Do you sell own-root apple trees?

Question

Asked by: Leo  from California, 01-Mar-2018

I'd like to purchase "own-root" apple and pear trees from you. Is that possible?

Answer

Own-root trees are grown on their own roots, rather than being grafted on rootstocks. We rarely use this technique because in the vast majority of cases fruit trees are more productive when grafted on size-controlling rootstocks. However we do occasionally have some own-root trees, such as Morello cherry trees grafted on their own roots.
