9 Varieties of apple on strong rootstock that will live 60-100 plus years if cared for properly. Below are the varieties I currently have.
Goldrush - an attractive smooth skinned apple with great disease resistance. Sweet and tart excellent for fresh eating, sauce, and cider. Goldrush has become one of the most popular home orchard apples. Keeps very well. Some say the flavors improve after a month of cool storage. Ripens in October.
Ashmeads Kernal - an old russet apple from England. Developed in the 1700’s. Amazing complex flavor with hints of pear, very crisp apple that stores well (3-4 months in cold storage). A favorite among many (one of my favorites for sure!) Moderate disease resistance. Ripens late October.
****SOLD OUT/Liberty - released from Geneva, New York in 1978. This apple is highly resistant to all major apple diseases. Great flavor, sweet and tart, stores well all winter. Ripens late season.
****SOLD Out/Northern Spy - an all around great apple that’s been around since the 1840’s. Great for fresh eating, cooking and cider. Vigorous grower, ripens late season. Large fruits.
****SOLD OUT/Sweet 16 - sweet apple with good disease resistance. Sweet 16 develops flavors of cherry and berries. Ripens September-October.

****SOLD OUT/Golden Delicious - an easy to grow popular apple with crisp sweet flesh. Ripens mid Sept-October. Stores well and is self fertile

All my trees are grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers, pesticides or herbicides. My trees are beyond organically grown.
Most trees are on standard or semi standard rootstock. I choose these so the trees have long lives and good overall strength and vigor.
I do have a limited amount of dwarf trees available as well.
Trees will be available for pick up as soon as they go dormant. I grow them out in a nursery bed so they don’t become root bound. Trees will be sold as bare root.
If you’re unable to pick up your order, I can deliver within LaSalle-Peru for a $5 fee. Beyond LaSalle-Peru, I will have to charge based on where you’re located.
I will also be available for custom grafting this coming Spring. If you have a crab apple or an existing apple or pear tree, I can graft other varieties onto your trees for a fee. It’s nice having multiple varieties on a single tree!
I also have :
Select American Persimmon tree seed available. Email me for pictures. They’re incredible. 20 seeds for $10.
Jerusalem Artichokes for planting. This is a perennial sunflower that produces delicious edible tubers and beautiful flowers. Attracts monarchs, bees and many other pollinators. Plants thrive in just about any soil. Great for breaking up hard soils while producing food and flowers for pollinators. The variety I have is Stampede. Plants grow to around 12 feet tall. $10 for enough to plant a good patch. Email me for pictures.
