Current Sale Size: 1/2" caliper*, 5-6 ft. bare-root transplant
* Update: these were upgraded by the nursery to 1/2" caliper, feathered (FTH) stock, meaning they'll have already have some mature branches. We had them previously listed as 5/8-3/4". 

Rootstock: G-890. Cross pollination required. Vigorous, semi-dwarf rootstock with deep growing roots.  G-890 is a cold hardy root, resistant to fire blight and crown rot.
