Apple Trees - Ein ShemerMalus domestica
USDA Hardiness Zones: 6-9
The Ein Shemer Apple tree produces a pale yellow, medium-sized apple. The apple's sweet, semi-acidic taste is perfect for eating right off the tree or for making into applesauce. The apples ripen in June and July and can be kept for two weeks when refrigerated. The Ein Shemer Apple Tree is perfect for Gulf Coast planting, and pollinates well with Anna & Dorsett Gold Apples. It requires 350 chill hours. For planting, apple trees prefer full sun and slightly acidic soil. At maturity, the Ein Shemer apple can reach a height and width of 12-15 feet.
USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9.

How to Plant
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.
It looks like a very healthy little tree and it is beginning to put out leaves now. It has a nice shape to it too. We will see in due time how the fruit turn out.
One tree came in excellent condition 2nd the top was broken 😰
The tree arrived ahead of when I expected it. The packaging was excellent and the tree was in great shape. It was larger than I expected 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.
I bought an Ein Shemer bareroot and potted it a year and a half ago. It rooted and grew very well. Within 6 months, it gave us a few apples. They were very small and quite sweet but the flesh was mush. This year, we got about a dozen and a half very sweet, mushy apples. I choked down half of them and threw away the rest. It's next to an Anna and near to a Honeycrisp and a Macintosh. I'll keep it one more year but if I get mushy apples again, away it goes. The Anna is great, very sweet, crisp, juicy and stores very well. We're harvesting the second crop of Anna now and it's flowering for a third! (We live in Los Angeles so the weather is no problem.)
