7 gal pot. Please read before ordering. This plant is grown in 7 gal pot, more mature than our standard size plants in 3 gal, has more developed root system, and most of the time thicker trunk and more branches. However actual plant size may vary depending on growing season and on variety. Dwarf varieties are slow growers and may be shorter trees than upright varieties. See a picture showing relative size of plants grown in 3 gal and 7 gal.
You may contact us if tree height matters to you and we will provide you with more exact plant size we have in stock at the time. 7 gal plants may be shipped separately from other items by Ground service due to its large size. See here time in transit (business days, excluding Sat-Sun!)
