Juicy and sweet, the Candy Crisp® apple lives up to its name. It is shaped like a Red Delicious apple with the top wider than the bottom and knobs on its flooring and has golden skin with a pink blush. This apple tree is vigorous, upright, and a heavy bearer. Fruit crops will keep up to four months in proper storage. Fruit texture is firm and juicy! Some have described the Candy Crisp® apple as having pear taste and scent and lacking in apple flavor. The Candy Crisp® apple was discovered by chance in a New York apple orchard among red delicious apple trees. For this reason the red delicious apple is thought to be a parent of the Candy Crisp® apple. The Candy Crisp® apple tree is disease resistant and can withstand the cold, although it needs full sun to produce fruit. It is hardy in USDA Zones 4-7.

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.

Tree is Wonky Looking

Received the tree and well-packaged box and the tree that I got was not upright. The leader branch leans heavily to the side so I'm training it to be more erect. Overall, tree looks healthy, but first impression is that I didn't get the best one in the nursery.
