With 43 heritage apples, plums, pears, sour and sweet cherries, nectarines, apricots and peaches, planted in 2014, we hope to have a small orchard to provide local fruit. We have several years before our little bare roots will be big enough to produce. Until then, it is just a waiting game! All of our apple, pear, plum, and sour cherry varieties were started in zone 3 or colder. Our sweet cherries, apricots, nectarines, and peaches, are more of a fun experiment as they are at the upper end of our growing zone here up Miller Creek.
