2018 Fruit Tree List

The 2018 fruit tree list at Johnson's Nursery includes an assortment of traditional favorite apple trees, cherry trees, peach trees, pear trees, plum trees, and currant shrubs. Also returning are two of the very popular Urban Apple® columnar apple trees for patio gardening and small landscapes. Fruit trees sell out quickly every year; we recommend calling to reserve your plants sooner than later.

Training & Pruning Fruit Trees

Training and pruning fruit trees is important to being a successful fruit grower. You train early in a fruit tree's life to achieve proper/desired shape and form (central leader, open center). The first-early years of a tree's life are most important for proper tree training until the tree reaches its mature height. Learn more about Training & Pruning Fruit Trees.
