Ships to you bare-root, ready to plant, and professionally pruned.
Heavily bloomed, 1″ diameter fruit. Color varies from black, blue, red or yellow.
Widely used by the early settlers for fresh eating, canning, jams, jellies and sauces. Still delightful for all these purposes.
Straggling, stiff, thorny bush. Grows 6-10 feet high and 6′ wide. Fragrant white flowers in June. Shrub grows well in the poorest soil.
Ours seem to flourish along our roadside with all the salt and sand from the winter storms. Native to sand dunes along the Atlantic coast.

2 year old seedlings, not grafted, fruit will be variable.
We highly recommend protecting your trees with a tree tube
Growing trees in the Northeast has proved challenging. One of our main struggles has been with deer and other tree nibbling predators.
Not only were our orchard trees being nibbled and rubbed, but now the deer/rabbits/porcupines/voles and more were heading towards our nursery stock.
I guess when you set out a buffet, the animals say ‘THANKS!’
We decided to purchase a few hundred TREE PRO Miracle Tree Tubes and were quickly sold on the benefits.
Trees that seemed to be stuck in their growth were now growing. We no longer had to constantly move electric fencing. Even trees in remote areas on the farm were thriving.
Where we had ordered them last year to offer to you, Tree Pro started selling them on Amazon (of course) and they are cheaper and offer FREE Shipping. We still highly recommend them!
