Willis Orchard Company offers our customers a wide variety of sizes on many fruit trees. Most varieties of fruit trees will start as a small whip, which is only one main trunk. Often times the whip is described as “just a stick”. These are young trees that one can enjoy watching grow and then prune to a desired shape or size. We also offer “Fruiting Size” trees that generally have at least a ¾ to 1 inch caliper, branched well and have reached the age to fruit. A grower that doesn't have a lot of time to spend may want to purchase this size or even our largest size category, the “Instant Orchard”. These trees have actually produced fruit here at our orchard. We also carry a tree called EZ Pick. The EZ Pick trees have been aggressively pruned when younger so that the first set of branches are much lower than a normal fruit tree. This makes the fruit harvesting a much easier and more enjoyable process.
Planting fruit trees in your yard can completely transform a barren landscape into one teeming with birds, pollinators, and other wildlife. Deer can be a nuisance to some younger fruit trees so the use of tree tubes, fencing, or some other form of deterrent may be necessary. Most fruit tree prefer full to partial shade and a well draining soil as well as a pH of around 6.0. Willis Orchard Company carries a variety of trees that grow as far north as Maine and as far south as Florida and most places in between. Make us your first choice for all of your fruit tree needs!
