Different Kinds of Fruit Trees...
The Dolgo Crabapple
is a beautiful crab tree that has good cold tolerance and a high level of disease resistance. In spring, the tree is covered with white flowers and its green shiny leaves begin to form. Due to the long bloom time of its flowers, its a good pollinator for many other types of crabapple and apple trees. The Dolgo Crabapple produces a heavy crop of large 1 - 1.5" olive shaped crabapples. These crabapples are crimson in color and very flavorful. The fruit of this tree ripens in August and September and persists well into December. The size and flavor of the crabapple, along with its slow drop of fruit over an extended period of time, make this an excellent selection for deer hunting plots.
The Bartlett Pear
is the number one grown and consumed pear in the world. This fast growing and long-lived European pear tree produces a nice crop of large yellow-green fruit. The flesh of the fruit is white with a smooth texture and the taste is juicy. The Bartlett Pear is easy to grow and is a favorite of both first time gardeners and long time orchard growers. The Bartlett Pear tree prefers and will produce the best crops in deep, fertile and well drained soil. However, it will tolerate other soil types as long as they are well drained, but the crops will be somewhat reduced. The Bartlett Pear is self fruiting, but will yield a larger crop when planted within 50' of our Bartlett Pear. As with all fruit trees, it is important to keep them watered during periods of drought.
The American persimmon
tree can grow to be 60 feet tall but normally doesn’t reach more than 20 feet tall. The trunk and branches are thin with grey-brown bark that is said to resemble reptile scales. The oval leaves are about 6 inches in length and alternate down the stems. In spring, the tree develops small, white tubular flowers. In the fall, orange one-inch to two-inch fruits develop. Flowers bloom in mid-spring and fruits form in the fall. The fruits are an important source of food for mammals and birds. Mammals that eat the fruits will distribute the seeds to new areas. Persimmon trees will grow for several years before they start to produce fruit. Persimmons will quickly grow in disturbed areas but as the location transforms from a field to a forest, the persimmon trees will be outpaced by larger species.
