The Q&A Archives: Source for Disease-Resistant Fruit Trees

Question: My husband and I would like to grow fruit-bearing trees in our yard (apples, plums etc.?) We need to know which types are best, when to plant and where to buy the baby trees...Thanks in advance! Audra Beberman Melville, NY

Answer: There are so many types of apples to choose from, it's hard to recommend a single variety. You might want to consider a disease-resistent variety like Libery, Nova Easygro or Macfree. Good plum varieties include: Alderman, Pipestone, and Green Gage. One great source of information on growing fruit trees is St. Lawrence Nurseries' catalog. They offer a wide variety of hardy fruit trees, and information about planting and care. Their telephone number is 315-265-6739.
