These are bare root fruit trees that I have ordered. I did not propagate these trees myself. I already have at least one of most these varieties in the ground and I know that they do well in my climate. Some have too high a chill hour requirement for Houston inside the beltway, but should work in the outlying areas. Generally central Houston gets about 200 to 300 chill hours. Here in Hempstead, a mere 50 miles away we get 500–700 chill hours. Contact me if you have questions. 713-542-6615 email
