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.

Apple trees for south

Got my trees in great shape with fast shipping secure boxing thanks much Louis C.

Planted in So. Tx

Although I did not order my tree from this site, I wanted to let y'all know how wonderful this variety is. I planted mine about 3 yrs ago and my tree is about 15' high already. I did plant the Golden Delicious for cross pollination.. And I've had terrific results with that too. You will not be disappointed! Be patient and you will be rewarded!

Dad loved it

I got the Anna apple tree for my Dad at Father's Day. It was delivered in about a week and was in realy good condition.

Our Anna and Dorsett Apple Trees

We were very pleased with the prompt delivery of our trees. They were very well packed and in great shape. We purchased the 1-2 ft. size trees, but they were actually between 3-4 ft. Both had some green leaves on them, and they are already budding out some more leaves! Thankfully, we have had much rain during the 9 days we've had them planted, so our initial watering of them has been mostly taken care of! We were also very pleased with the communications with Plant Me Green. Good company!

Happy delivery

The tree arrived ahead of when I expected it and it is one recommended for my USDA Zone. The packaging was excellent and the tree was in great shape. It was larger than I expected with several green leaves which was a pleasant surprise. Even though this is not the best time of year to plant trees in my neighborhood, I got it into the ground within 24 hours of receipt. I will surely have to baby it along during the coming hot summer weather, but it arrived in such good shape that I am really optimistic about its chances to thrive. I can recommend this vendor and will look to them for my future purchases.
