Fruit Tree Planting Day 2022

Orders are closed for 2022! Please check back next year!

Every year Halifax Earth Tech partners with Transition Bay st Margarets to order productive trees from a local nursery and get growing! We can grow many kinds of fruits and nut trees. We do NOT take money “off the top” and you save a little on shipping through the bulk order.

PAYMENT:

We must receive full payment by the deadline, April 15 2022, in order to include your order. Payment can be made by e-transfer to jenstotland@gmail.com. The pickup location will be at 27 Rufus Avenue, date to be determined based on weather. We do not want frost to nip your tree’s tender buds.

All trees are $95.00 or $114.25 with tax and shipping except multigraft apple which is $177.50. Trees are 6-8′ tall.

Hazelnut

Corylus avanella

6 to 15 feet. A small tree that will assume a shrubby shape if not pruned. Hazelnuts will put out their female flowers and male flowers at different times, so plant two for best fruiting success. A bristly cap (like on an acorn) envelopes the nut almost entirely.

Carpathian Walnut

Juglans regia

Walnut is a large tree from 70 to 120 feet. When nuts comes off the tree, they will have a husk that will turn black and fall off when the nut is ripe.

American chestnut

Castanea dentata

A large tree producing hundreds of small and flavourful chestnuts. Plant 2 for pollination.

A

American Pawpaw

Asimina trilobum

North America’s largest native fruit, the pawpaw rivals the size of the mango! It tastes like a cross between banana, avocado and vanilla, and can be eaten raw or in baked goods. The fruit will grow filled with large inedible black pits. Pawpaw tolerates shade and benefits from a sheltered spot. Plant 2 for pollination.

Montmorrency cherry

Prunus cerasus

A prolific tart cherry. Because they bloom later than sweet cherries, Montmorency are more dependable fruit producers in cooler climates. It is self fertile and requires no pollinator. The juicy, tart cherries ripen early, just two months after spring bloom.

Reliance Peach

Prunus persica

Apple Multigraft

Malus domestica

Multigraft apples are 150.00. M26 rootstock produces a medium size apple tree which might be 15 to 25 feet. If your tree is not multigraft you need to have 3 types of apple or have some in your neighbourhood for pollination.
