I want to get a couple apple trees and trying to decide on dwarf, semi or standard. Also, any recommmendations on type(name). We have lots of room. Has to be good for cold weather, too. We sometime get down to minus 35 here. Thanks!
'One Green World' nursery has some great red fleshed apples. Even a few combo trees, and all are either dwarf or semi dwarf. I've ordered from them before-found the service and the product to be terrific.
Go with standard trees, most if not all semi-dwarf rootstock isn't hardy enough for those temps. Check the catalog at St. Lawrence Nursery for cold zone varieties. Even if you don't order from them you'll have a good idea what'll grow in your climate.
