Growing marketable fruit in the Mid-Atlantic is sometimes referred to as the holy grail of organic gardening. Located at the nexus of the Northern and Southern climates, the Mid-Atlantic boasts some of the most challenging conditions for growing fruit in the country. Most commercial growers use tremendous amounts of pesticides, fungicides, herbicides and still struggle. Having said that, Edible Eden's skilled growers and perennials specialists know what it takes to grow fruit realistically in our climate. From special varieties of disease resistant apples to choosing fruits like sour cherries or Asian pears that require less toxic management practices- Edible Eden can help you produce delicious abundance.

Sometimes, just knowing which variety of peach will ripen for you before the fruit flies get them makes all the difference in the world.

From amending the soil to just the right conditions, pruning your trees for maximum production and health to assessing pest and disease damage and offering solutions- Edible Eden is your backyard fruit specialist!

We also specialize in unique and exotic tree sculpting techniques like espalier and cordon.
