|Fruit and Nut|
Welcome to fruitandnut.ie.
We are a specialist supplier of fruit and nut trees. We supply cobnuts, walnuts, chestnuts, apples, plums, damsons, cherries, pears, apricots, quince, medlar, blueberries, sea buckthorn, 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 2013/14, including discounted or sale items, please refer to order 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 including an eight hundred tree cobnut project. We have also supplied the trees for a one hundred tree walnut orchard - probably the largest orchard of its type ever to be planted in Ireland.
The full range of fruit and nut trees available this season (2013/14) can be found on the order page (see above). This season we are offering an even bigger range of fruiting trees and shrubs. Among the new items are varieties blueberry that are more tolerant of exposed Irish conditions, new varieties of honeyberry (Siberian honeysuckle), aronia, amelanchier, and also an increased range of apple and pear. We are also offering an greater selection of fruit trees on dwarfing rootstocks aimed specifically at the urban gardener.
