The Anna Apple tree has a low chill requirement, making it a great apple tree for the South, especially for Gulf Coast planting. It needs only 200 chill hours to fruit. The fruit, red, sweet, semi-acidic apples, ripens in June and July. Once they ripen, these medium to large apples can be eaten fresh or used in your favorite home recipes. Anna apples also store very well, keeping for 6-8 weeks in the refrigerator so you can enjoy them through late summer. The tree has a moderate growth-rate and reaches a mature height and width of 20-25 feet. The Anna Apple tree can be pollinated with the Dorsett Apple tree or with the Floribunda Crabapple tree. For planting, apples trees prefer full sun and slightly acidic soil. The Anna Apple tree is hardy in Zones 6-9. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9.

STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.

Water apple trees regularly, making sure to keep the soil moist without drowning the tree. Prune in the winter while the tree is growing and in the summer once the tree has reached its desired height.

Great trees

Ordered 2 Anna apple trees and 2 golden dorsett apple trees. Both arrived in great condition and way larger than expected. Great place to order trees. Will be ordering more soon


Can't wait for it to start producing fruit.

Customer service always exceptional, packaging and preparing never a problem. Pleasure to do business with Plant MeGreen!

Anna apple

Just received my tree after fedex rode it around for two weeks , not happy about that

Anna Apple is a Precocious Little Thing

I have a dozen various dwarf apple trees. My two early apples are Anna and Dorsett Golden. While the Dorsett minds his manners and obeys my pruning cuts the Anna has a mind of her own and resists me. She grows and grows and grows. Sprouting all up and down the limbs and trunk although I never see any suckers she is known for pushing out new growth just about any where she has a bare spot. I have stopped winter pruning her due to this habit. Now I summer prune only. This year I even reduced her fertilizer and water to keep her within her area. So, for whatever reason my Anna is hard to contain. I am trying to keep her under 10ft but she'd rather be 15. This year her fruit load is minimal due to my deliberate severe pruning but two years back she was so loaded I was worried she'd break a scaffold limb. Just know that she can be unruly in certain situations. I am at 5200ft 7b No. AZ. The fruit is tasty and sweet but mushy when it is fully ripened on the tree. Also the apples are big and pretty. I'm picking all of them in few days and making pie filling.
