Bare Root Apples

Apple trees have existed before recorded history; ancient Phoenicians harvested wild apples. The apples of North America were brought over from Europe and were initially grown for making cider. Over the centuries, varieties were crossed to create the tasty varieties we grow today. Current popular varieties have also been bred in Australia and New Zealand. There are now over two thousand named clones. Commercial growers limit their crops to a few of these varieties. The home orchardist has a much greater selection. Bay Laurel offers some of the older varieties to augment your backyard orchard. Among these are Ashmead’s Kernal, Cox’s Orange Pippin, Golden Russet, Hudson's Golden Gem, Sierra Beauty, Spitzenburg and White Winter Permain.

Apples are now grown in every temperate region around the world. The trees are extremely adaptable and long-lived. Cold climates are generally the largest apple producers, but Anna, Dorsett Golden, Pettingill and Winter Banana thrive in climates as mild as Southern California. Fuji, Gordon, Pink Lady and White Winter Permain are other varieties that need minimal amounts of cold.

IMPORTANT:  You may notice that the chill hours given here differ from other websites.  The hours we list are based on the latest low chill trial information from Dave Wilson.  Many apple varieties are very productive with chill hours well below what was originally thought necessary.
