Wickson’s extremely high sugar and acidity make it a great cider apple. It is quick to reach bearing age and yields a heavy crop of 1-2 inch red fruit.

M111: M111 is considered semidwarf or semistandard, growing to 80% the size of a standard rootstock tree. Similar to a standard, trees on M111 are vigorous, adaptable and need no staking. Trees on M111 will begin bearing fruit slightly earlier than standard rootstock trees.

BULK PRICING: Any combination of 10 or more apples (potted and/ or bare-root) will receive 10% off.

Apples thrive in Vermont. You need to have at least two different varieties for pollination; however, apples are common enough in Vermont that you can often get away with planting one if a neighbor has a few trees. Wild trees or crab apples growing nearby can also serve as pollinators. More pollen often means more and larger fruit. Plant in a well-drained spot with good sun. We grow and sell varieties that perform well in our climate and growing conditions. Varieties listed as “heirloom” originated before 1900.

If you are planting a few trees, consider selecting varieties with different uses or ripening times. If you are planning to make hard cider, add a cider variety or two to blend with more typical dessert fruit.
