Adams County Nursery currently sells tree fruits released by the Rutgers tree fruit breeding program, such as peaches, nectarines, and apricots.
Due to high demand, commercial growers are encouraged to reserve trees one to two years in advance. See the Adams County Nursery Fruit Trees page for information about wholesale variety availability. You can place your order at any time by contacting Adams County Nursery directly.
Purchase fruit trees for your backyard! See the Adams County Nursery Fruit Trees page for information about retail variety availability.
Retail orders of more than 5 trees and less than 25 trees are priced at $31.95/tree, with the exception of cherry trees. If you wish to order less than five trees, a
freight surcharge relative to your location (see map) will be added to the order. This surcharge is applied on a per order basis, not a per tree basis.
Certain varieties do carry royalty fees, and these will be automatically calculated where applicable. Please see the Adams County Nursery Retail Pricing page for a full listing of varieties protected by U.S. Plant Patents and Trademarks.
