I have an opportunity to get a lot of small whips for a pretty good price. Apples and pears for $2 to $3 and plums for $1.50 a piece. All grafted bare root and only 18-24 inches tall. Does this seem like a good deal?

That would be about 40-50 grafted fruit trees for under $100.

Sounds like a good deal to me for sure. I have planted primarily larger established trees, but that's not bad at all for a potentially 2 ft tree.

yep, as long as it's the tree types you want... I've personally done a lot better when letting the little ones have a good year in a 3-5 gallon bucket all growing season than planting them the falling dormant season when their 4 to 6 foot and established...

That'll do just fine. May want to do some reading on training young whips like that for more horizontal limbs especially on the apple.

I would do this to them. Give them another year under a close eye and plant them next winter.

Price wise, I think it sounds like a great deal.
