    EZ-PICK® HOME GARDEN FRUIT TREES

                    WHY EZ-PICK®?


Why have huge trees that overwhelm your yard? Do you really want to climb ladders to pick your fruit? All this can be avoided.


Your home garden is different from a commercial orchard. Most people want small fruit trees that produce enough delicious fruit for the family and a few friends - not commercial sized trees optimized for high volume and tractors.
Standard fruit trees naturally grow to 20-30 feet. Even if you use semi-dwarfing rootstocks, most fruit trees still grow 15-20 feet - larger than people expect.


Through deliberate pruning, you can control the size and shape of your fruit trees regardless of rootstock. Why not keep it 6 to 12 feet tall with most of the fruit in the easy-to-reach 4 to 7 foot range?


EZ-PICK® fruit trees have been started in the nursery with a very low branching structure giving you a jump start at maintaining a tree to a size that is convenient for you.
There is another benefit to smaller trees - they give you room for multiple varieties of your favorite tasting fruits.

WHY NOT TRY EZ-PICK® HOME GARDEN TREES?

EZ-PICK Trees are already pruned at 20” so they start with main branches lower. Over the years we have talked about the advantages of summer pruning and training your fruit trees to be short with low branches like a bush. Trees that are kept at about 8’ tall (think fruit ‘bush’) are……….

1. Easier to pick the fruit .                            

2. Less likely to be sunburned.
3. Easier to thin the fruit.                                               

4. More likely to get fruit sooner.
5. Easier to prune the tree.  

6. Able to have more varieties in a smaller area.
7. Easier to spray the tree.

8. More likely to keep you off a dumb ladder.
