Do you want to grow your own fruits or nuts? Portland’s mild climate allows for many kinds of fruit and nut trees to be grown. Apples, Figs, Plums and Hazelnuts are just a few of the trees Portland Nursery offers every spring.
Our selection of fruit trees changes every year, so we post lists annually to help with planning. The list is based on orders that are confirmed by our growers, so they reflect our best estimate of what to expect. However, we don't always receive what is confirmed - there are often changes in root stocks and crop failures can occur. Only after orders arrive are we certain of our stock.
We plant all of our fruit trees in pots, and do not offer bare-root fruit trees.
Fruit trees, berries and small fruits begin to arrive in January, and trickle in weekly through winter. Call to check if the varieties you have selected are available before making a special trip.
** Crop failures may cause shortages and we cannot guarantee all varieties to be available. Our fruit trees for 2017 arrive mainly in February-March, and often sell quickly. Please call ahead to confirm stock.
Some fruit trees are self-fertile. This means that they require only one tree to be planted in order to bear fruit. Many fruit trees are not self-fertile and should be planted with a compatible partner to ensure pollination and fruit. Compatible partners are a different variety of the same type of fruit.

Fruit Trees requiring Pollinators
*The varieties we stock are self-fertile. There are other varieties that require pollinators.
We carry a wide variety of trees year-round. These represent only a fraction of what you will find and are some of our favorites. Note: Viewing a Native Plant will take you into our Native Plant section.
