For growers, each plantation is a huge investment for the next 12 to 20 years. Only high quality fruit trees ensure a fast return.
Since the beginning of the tree production, Gräb nursery claims to cultivate only well feathered and rooted plant material. Well rooted starter material, that we receive from selected rootstock-nurseries, are only one element for our quality trees.
After grafting we remove herbaceous branches on the trunk several times at an early stage to avoid undesirable pruning wounds.
Therefore, we are able to offer trees with different stem heights to our clients. Furthermore, we are able to devise individual solutions concerning the variety-rootstock combinations.
