Our fruits trees are northern grown so you know they can take our cold winters. All apple trees are available in semi-dwarf and grow between 8 and 12 feet and have fruit in 1-3 years. Dwarf is what we recommend for ease of picking and caring for. For less spraying, choose a disease resistant (DR) apple. Most trees need a pollinator, (another apple or crabapple within 100 ft.)

|No Picture||HARROW SWEET PEAR
Picked about three weeks after Bartletts, Harrow Sweets are sweeter and have a denser flesh than Bartlett. At times, the skin can be a bit astringent, so they are best enjoyed peeled. Unlike Bartletts which should be a light yellow when eaten (otherwise they go soft), Harrows need to be a hard yellow and give to the touch, otherwise they will be too firm. Harrow Sweets are fire blight resistant a disease that can wipe out other pear trees. Picked in early October. Zone 4.

BLUEBERRY SHRUBS are self-fruitful however, when two or more cultivars are present, cross-pollination produces fruit that ripens earlier and is larger. They are high in antioxidants and provide many nutritional benefits. Blueberries require an acid soil & uniformly moist, but not saturated for best results. Heavy poorly drianed soil should be avoided.If you can grow azaleas and rhododendrons, then you can grow the Blueberry. They grow in the same types of places and enjoy the same soils.Give them six hours of sun a day and plant another cold weather blueberry to cross-pollinate and youll have mouthwatering berries all season long. Excellent for landscape with flowering, fruiting and brilliant fall colors of orange to red.
