Low Chill

Raintree offers special low chill apple varieties for Southern growers who don't get enough chill hours to grow most apples. Fruit trees require a certain number of chill hours to fruit. Chill hours are those hours between 32F and 49F.

In the North, growers generally get enough chill hours. However, many Southern growers may get from zero to only 600 hours depending on location and year. See our chill hour chart for the approximate hours in your area.

Items listed on the website are what we have available this season. Items appearing in the Raintree catalog that are sold out do not appear on the website. If you are interested in reserving a sold out item for next year, call us at 1-800-391-8892.
LATE PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS: If you live in an area where temperatures are now often above 75 degrees, it is too warm to plant bare root plants. You can call us and reserve for next season. For those of you in cooler areas, our bare root plants area dormant in cold storage and are in great condition to dig in and grow for you.

We advise soaking the roots for 24 hours before planting.
