Standard Fruit Trees

Standard Fruit Trees Buyer's Guide

Standard fruit trees are the largest-size fruit trees available. Without the size-restriction of dwarf or semi-dwarf rootstocks, these trees are reminiscent of their “standard”, full heights. Picture a majestic 18 to 25 foot (or larger) tree providing loads of fruit at harvest time and generous amounts of shade in the summer months — that’s a standard-size fruit tree. Standard fruit trees may take longer to fruit than dwarf or semi-dwarf fruit trees, but, once they get started, they produce a greater quantity of fruit over time. You may need a ladder or fruit picker to help at harvest, but you can enjoy harvests from long-lived standard fruit trees for generations.

  • Standard-size peach trees and nectarine trees are naturally smaller than other standard fruit trees, and are only about 12 to 15 feet tall and wide at maturity.
  • Standard European pear trees, with their columnar growth habit, mature at about 18 to 20 feet tall (and 12 to 13 feet wide).
  • Standard apricot trees average 15 to 20 feet tall and wide once they’ve fully matured.
