  1. Jarvis Taylor

    I waited to write a review until these fruited. They are growing like champs, and the berries are large and sweet. It’s not as heavy of a producer as my red Caroline’s, but still a very good berry. They are softer, and don’t store for long periods of time. Definitely not a commercial variety, but they’re wonderful in the back yard. Very happy I added these to the garden.

    Great tree. Put it in late last year and was worried it wouldnt survive winter here in upstate New York. It only had one branch and a handful of leaves. This year it blew up. And even flowered already. Great tree and great nursery.


    A very hardy dwarf tree. Wasn’t bothered by last winter–which plummeted to 15 below zero!

    The tree I got last year survived the winter. It is about 3’ tall and just now getting leaves. I hope it gets some major growth this year.

  5. Thomas Clark

    These trees were in good shape and health when we got them, and they have flourished ever since. These trees have done better than our neighbors locally bought fruit trees.

  6. Jim Sebastian

    Second year in the ground and the tree looks very healthy. No blossoms this year so no apples yet. Hopefully next year!

  7. Donald Clark

    A of the Crisp trees seem to being doing fine, They have all leafed out, and one of them has even got blossem’s already this year . They all seem to be very sturdy apple trees..

  8. Jeannine Lee

    This tree is doing great. It DOUBLED in size last year and this year already has a lot of new growth. I was tickled to see it had 5 flowers this year (year 2) and it looks like one may actually produce an apple. How fun is that?


    It is struggling. I purchased this tree the same time as the peach tree and it is not doing as well as the peach, struggling to bud out but Iam hopeful that it will take.

    This tree has been in ground for one year …. replaced my old Apple tree due to a bark nettle infestation . Just went to pull the weeds around the new tree and I have blossoms on three branches I’m really excited.
