Apple Trees - North Pole (Columnar)

Malus domestica 'North Pole'
USDA Hardiness Zones: 4-8


The North Pole apple tree is a unique and space-saving columnar apple tree that brings both aesthetic appeal and delicious fruit to any garden or landscape. It has no branches but flowers and sets fruit from spurs on its trunk. The fruit is red-skinned, crispy, and juicy and perfect for eating out of hand, cider, and pies. The taste is similar to McIntosh in flavor. Ideal for USDA Hardiness Zones 4 through 8, this compact and upright tree is perfect for small gardens, patios, or urban spaces where traditional apple trees may not fit. The North Pole Apple Tree produces crisp, juicy apples with a bright red skin and a sweet-tart flavor, typically ready for harvest in late summer to early fall. In spring, the tree is adorned with beautiful white blossoms, attracting pollinators and adding seasonal beauty to your garden.

How to Plant
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.
Care Guide

To care for the North Pole Apple Tree, plant it in well-drained soil with full sun exposure to ensure healthy growth and optimal fruit production. Regular watering is crucial, especially during dry spells, to keep the soil consistently moist but not waterlogged. Pruning is minimal but should be done annually in late winter or early spring to maintain its columnar shape and remove any dead or diseased branches. Fertilize in early spring with a balanced fertilizer to support robust growth and fruit development. With its space-efficient form, ease of care, and productive harvest, the North Pole Apple Tree is an excellent choice for both novice and experienced gardeners looking to enjoy fresh apples right from their own garden.
