Fruit Trees & Small Fruits

Shop at Drummers during the growing season for a large, 4-acre, selection of trees, shrubs and roses. In many cases you will find a choice in plant size. We carry apple, edible crab apple, apricot, peach, pear, plum and cherry trees. Drummers also offers small fruit varieties like rhubarb, raspberry, blackberry, blueberry, grape and more. Find the best selection in spring. Our trees and shrubs go on display outdoors around April 15 until late October, weather permitting.

During the off season you may shop and order from one of our plant vendors, Monrovia Nurseries with the link below. You’ll be purchasing the plant from Monrovia and choose to have it delivered to Drummers free of charge this spring!


From old varieties to new, including University of Minnesota fruit trees, find great options for your home orchard that are winter hardy to the Mankato area.
