Apples are one of the oldest fruits grown around the world. With thousands of cultivars to choose from there is sure to be a variety perfect for your yard. Apples require a certain amount of chill hours (or dormancy period) as well as a pollinator to produce fruit. Please ensure you have a variety that will cross pollinate or a crabapple tree nearby before expecting fruit on your tree.
- The variety of apple selected should be based on fruit characteristics, bloom time, and pollen compatibility.
- Apple trees can grow in USDA Zones 4 to 10.
If you are our northern friends, we suggest varieties: Granny Smith, Winesap, Red or Golden Delicious, Gala, or Mcintosh.
If you are our southern friends, we suggest varieties: Anna, Golden Dorsett, Fuji, Gala, Granny Smith, or Ein Shemer.
**Always verify chill hours and USDA growing zones match your circumstances before purchase.**
- Apples are not self pollinating so you will need a cross pollinator for your tree. Please reference our pollination chart to find a variety right for you. Crabapple trees can also be used as pollinators if they bloom at the same time as the desired variety.
Try adding DIEHARD TRANSPLANT to your apple trees for better survival and growth rates and less watering.
