Does anyone have them and if so what kind? I would like to do at least two trees, and I guess apples would be one, maybe both. Does anyone in the Scranton area know where to purchase these, and does anyone have any experience in this area with them?

If you are only planting two trees, make sure they are of different varieties as they need to cross pollinate. If there is a crab apple tree in close proximity, that will pollinate an apple tree (so I have read).

There are also trees that are "dwarfed" trees. These are standard trees grafted onto a dwarfed root stock. These trees will start to produce fruit in 3-4 years. Regular trees will take 8-10 years to start producing.

As for the type of apple tree, I don't believe that it really matters. I think they will all do will in your area. I've read that the ground needs to have a good freeze each year for a productive crop.

I'm sorry, that is all the help I can lend.
