Still Making Apple Trees


The grafting season is winding to a close here in Southern California, but we still have fresh rootstocks and all the varieties of scionwood, including our champion bearer, King David (pictured).  If you were contemplating getting an order in this spring, now is a good time to do it, as one big order can wipe us out for the season.  And what a season it’s been; we’ve shipped to India, Africa, Hong Kong, Cayman Islands, and a bunch of orders to that hot bed of apple-growing, Hawaii.  Oddly enough, we’ve also had orders from Wisconsin and New York, which is OK since our apple trees do just fine there also.  Not many fruits have this range of climates where it will grow.

  1. Hi Kevin! How old is your King David tree? Is it from a bench-graft tree as well? And do you have a thick layer of mulch around the drip line of your apple tree? Thank you 🙂

    • The King David tree was started as a benchgraft in 2009. These trees were mulched in 2010 and are about due for another layer.
