Tiny Orchards is a suburban backyard fruit orchard located in the town of Saco, Maine.   We grow 188 cultivars of fruit, mostly great old heirlooms that you won’t likely ever find in your local supermarket.  Our collection is comprised of 108 different apples, 48 pears, 17 plums, 6 apricots, 6 peaches and 3 cherries, each with something unique and worthwhile to offer.  Every tree has been grafted onto dwarf or super-dwarf rootstocks to allow us to accommodate as much variety as possible in the space we’ve got.  Apples are grown on P.22, G.11, or G.41; pears on Pyro™ 2-33; cherries on Gisela 5; and peaches, plums, and apricots on Krymsk 1.  Apples and pears are trained to a Super Spindle Open V-Trellis System, with trees spaced just 27” apart in staggered rows.   Three dozen of our cultivars were brought in through the USDA Plant Quarantine program over the last decade to ensure that they’re virus free.   On this side of the pond, they’re unique to our orchard.  These heirlooms came from collections in England, Wales and the Czech Republic and all have proven to withstand a blustery Zone 5b coastal Maine winter.   We’re soon to be selling trees of all 188 varieties.   We’ll also be offering 6-tree "Tiny Orchards" of our apples, all on dwarf and super-dwarf rootstocks, which will tuck neatly into a 6-foot by 9-foot area in your yard and easily be maintained at a mature height of 6 to 7 feet.

We regretfully are not yet open to the public.
