Apple trees

It is essential to choose an apple tree adapted to Canada's climate. Cold-hardy apple trees are the key to success in the North. Planting and growing is easier when you choose the right tree. The right apple tree for Canada is cold-hardy and disease resistant.

All of our apple trees are grafted on full-size rootstock that is cold hardy to zone 2. They are extremely vigorous and have a long life. Of the 200+ varieties of apple trees in our orchard, they all survived the winter test of -47° Celsius. Amongst all our produce, we have carefully selected the apple trees with a superior taste, and resistant to disease. You are assured peace of mind when choosing from the varieties below, as they are all top of the line.

The apple trees we propagate need very little maintenance, whereas varieties such as McIntosh, Cortland and Empire are prone to disease and insects. They require the use of pesticides and fungicides numerous times every summer to maintain them.

Most apple trees are self-fertile, meaning that they will bear fruit even when planted alone. However, they often give greater quantity of fruit if planted with a different apple variety. We would suggest planting your apple trees in fertile, well drained soil, spacing them 9 metres (30 feet) apart. Your apple tree should start to bear fruit within 3 to 5 years.
