I am in Denver, and I was wondering if anybody has had experience with the bare root fruit trees from Costco? They are cheap and avoid shipping costs, but I am not sure as to quality. At least they are bare root, not potted.

I did not know they sold bare root trees. Let me know how it goes will ya. I'm close and would happily bug my bosses into going to Costco for me if they did well.

I didn't know that either. Do you order them or are they in the store?

Apparently they are in the store. One of the members of my group bought a four way plum there, and we planted it on one of our farm sites. It is still alive, anyway.

And other folks have told me the prices are really great.
