Vermont Fruits & Berries

Vermont has been home to growing fruit trees and berries for as long as settlers have lived here. Growing fruit in Vermont goes beyond just Apples, strawberries and Blueberries however, depending on your location and conditions you may be able to successfully grow grapes, plum, cherry, even apricot and pear trees!

Fruit trees and plants also offer choices used for their flowering beauty. Many bushes can be grown as edible hedges or for the attractiveness of their berries.

People often assume growing fruit trees and berries can't be done in Vermont. Horsford Nursery and Garden Center can help you choose the right varieties for your local conditions, and we can advise you on how to get the most out of our wide selection of Fruit trees and Berries.
