Fruit and Nut
| Welcome to fruitandnut.ie.
We are a specialist supplier of fruit and nut trees. We supply cobnuts, walnuts, chestnuts, heartnuts, almonds, apples, plums, damsons, cherries, pears, apricots, quince, medlar, mulberries, blueberries, honeyberries, aronia, amelanchier, ground-cover raspberries and many other less-common fruit and nut varieties.
All cultivars offered are suitable for Irish conditions. For the full range of stock available in 2014/15, please refer to the ordering page.
We offer a consultancy service on fruit and nut growing in Ireland, undertake orchard establishment and maintenance work, and can advise on municipal or community nut and fruit tree planting projects. We can also provide technical assistance with applications for grant-aided projects. Site visits can be arranged upon request.
We also run one and two day horticultural workshops on a wide range of topics.
We are particularly interested in supporting the establishment of orchard projects with long-term strategic value in terms of local food security. We are currently providing technical assistance in the establishment of several commercial-scale cobnut orchards (each involving 600+ trees) and one walnut orchard of 100+ trees (probably the largest nut orchards ever to be planted in Ireland).
This season we are offering an even bigger range of fruiting trees and shrubs. Among the new items are almonds, heartnuts, peaches, new varieties of honeyberry (Siberian honeysuckle), aronia, amelanchier, and also an increased range of apples and pears (particularly cider apples and perry pears). We are also offering an greater selection of fruit trees on dwarfing rootstocks aimed specifically at the urban gardener.
Please note we are not a garden centre. While we provide a collection facility for customers, we are unable to accommodate casual callers. Collection by appointment only.
Until Sept 30th, we are offering one free apple tree for every €100 spent. See below for details:
