Fruit Tree Sizing & Shapes
The table below explains the delivery sizes of the fruit trees that we grow, like Apple, Pear, Plum or Cherry trees which are collectively known as "top fruit".
- You can buy Cordons (apples & pears only as crop sizes are too small on stone fruit such as cherries and plums), Bushes and Half Standards to get a headstart on the most common fruit tree shapes.
- A Maiden tree is a "blank slate" that you can train yourself into any shape you want.
