Add spring color, summer shade, and healthy fruit to your yard by planting a fruit tree. See our species descriptions below for details on each tree.
All of our trees are currently 20% off for our Spring Tree Sale! Select the tree in the dropdown menu above to see the sale pricing.
All our fruit tree plantings are bare root. From the very beginning, bare root plantings are a great value because bare root trees have a more intact or larger root system, as the digging process in the nursery allows for more of the roots to stay intact.
Some of the fruit trees we offer are self-sterile, so they will produce less fruit without a suitable pollinator tree nearby (usually within 100 feet). Often these trees will set fruit just fine with no obvious pollinator nearby, but for larger yields, make sure to plant a friend! Read through the descriptions for information on which trees are self-sterile and which pollinator trees to plant.
Bartlett pear semi-dwarf | $132 | 6’ tall
Discovered in England in the late 18th century, this pear quickly made its way to the United States, and has become the most commonly grown pear grown here. One of the easiest to grow pears, it can produce fruit for up to 100 years. Plant in full sun with well-drained soil and be careful to water during dry periods. While capable of self-pollinating, the Bartlett pear will set more fruit if it can cross pollinate with another European pair variety. We recommend Parker. Learn More
Freedom apple, semi-dwarf | $132 | 6’ tall
Malus pumila ‘Freedom’
Freedom is a great apple for organic growers because it has the best disease resistance of any variety we’ve found. Its apples are crisp, sweet, and slightly tart—suitable for both fresh eating and baking Semi-dwarf apples require much less room than a standard apple and are easier to maintain and harvest. Grows 12 to 15 feet tall and wide. This apple tree is self-sterile, so you will need a different apple or white-flowered crabapple nearby flowering simultaneously for pollination. We suggest Honeycrisp. Learn More
Honeycrisp apple, semi-dwarf | $132 | 6’ tall
This is the apple that took America by a storm. You don’t need us to describe the flavor. Honeycrisps store well (a few months in the fridge) so your harvest won’t spoil before you have a chance to eat them. These apples are some of the latest to ripen, providing fresh fruit when everything else is out of season. This exceptionally hardy apple was developed at the University of Minnesota, and now that its patent has expired, it is available for everyone to grow. Semi-dwarf apples requires much less room than a standard apple and are easier to maintain and harvest. Grows 12 to 15 feet tall and wide. This apple tree is self-sterile, so you will need a different apple or white-flowered crabapple nearby flowering simultaneously for pollination. We suggest Fireside. Learn More
Bing cherry | $120 | 5’ tall
Prunus avium ‘Bing’
We don’t see many sweet cherry trees in the area, so we’re excited to offer this classic variety. Once mature, this tree can produce 50 to 100 pounds of fruit each year. Grow in full sun, with well-drained soil. Trees do not tolerate drought, so water through dry spells. In order to set fruit, this tree needs to cross pollinate with compatible varieties blooming at the same time, so we recommend planting a North Star cherry as a pollen source. Learn More
Mount Royal plum | $114 | 5’ tall
This very hardy plum produces abundant sweet, soft fruits. These plums are great eaten fresh and also bake wonderfully. Make them into pies and jams. Or for the adventurous, they yield a divine plum tarte tatin. Spring flowers are quite showy and fragrant. Freestone too! Self-pollinates. Learn More
North Star cherry | $120 | 5’ tall
This dwarf sour cherry was developed by the University of Minnesota, selected for its heavy production and disease resistance. Cherries ripen early in the season with bright red fruit and yellow flesh. These are great for baking but are also tasty fresh for adventurous eaters. When the weather starts to turn hot, there’s nothing more refreshing than tart cherries. Grow in full sun with well-drained soil. Plan to water it through dry spells. This tree is small and self-fertile, so it is excellent for small spaces where there is only enough room for one small tree. For stronger pollination, plant another cherry of a different variety. We suggest Montmorency. Learn More
Parker pear, semi-dwarf | $132 | 6’ tall
This pear will knock your socks off. Very few nurseries propagate this variety, so we’re very excited to be able to offer it this year. Flesh is sweet with a very fine texture—none of that pear “grit.” Keeps very well in cold storage. Produces into October for a late season crop. While capable of self-pollinating, the Parker pear will set more fruit if it can cross pollinate with another European pair variety. We recommend Bartlett. Learn More
Toka plum | $114 | 5’ tall
This interesting cultivar is a hybrid of the American plum and Chinese apricot. It produces red fruits with orange flesh, which are extremely aromatic and sweet. These plums are clingstone, but they’re worth the extra effort! Toka plums self-pollinate well. Learn More
All tree orders include tree planting, mulch ring installation, and initial watering. We are happy to include a watering bag with your order (add here).
Heartwood sells only quality plant stock that are free of defects and disease. Transplanted trees and shrubs don’t make it for many reasons. The biggest reason is lack of water; if you can water your tree or shrub it should live. If we plant your tree and it doesn't make it past the first year, we'll return the next spring and plant a new one at no additional cost.
