- While the type of tree is listed in alphabetical order, the varieties are listed in approximate order of ripening.
- Where available, we try to stock semi-dwarf trees. Semi-dwarf trees grow 1/2 to 2/3 the size of standard trees. This size of tree bears a good size crop and needs less room to grow.
- All trees are self-fertile unless otherwise noted.
