The Red Bartlett was first discovered as a bud sport on a regular Bartlett tree near Zillah, Washington in 1938. A "bud sport" is a naturally occurring transformation that develops occasionally on fruit trees. The Red Bartlett sport is very similar flavor to the Bartlett. Fruit striped brownish-red, changing to bright red when picked. Smaller tree than Bartlett. Fruit ripens without cold storage, but off the tree.

Trees are shipped with your invoice and helpful planting directions. There is no minimum quantity required but shipping rate for an individual tree is expensive since UPS/Fed Ex charge a dimensional weight and an additional handling fee to ship a tree. You'll find it's cost effective to consider a handful of trees,vines or our helpful Tree Starter Kits.
