Fruit Trees

Nursery – Fruit Trees

Colorful Seasons Garden Center carries a large selection of fruit trees, both Standard and semi-dwf varieties. Some varieties of fruits need two for cross pollination, while others are self pollinating. Small fruits grow 1 to 3 feet tall and fruit produce fruit within 1 to 2 years.

Fruit trees bear fruit. Some examples of fruit trees are apple trees, peach trees, pear trees, cherry trees, and many more fruit trees. Apple trees are very common and include many different varieties in their category alone.
