Where does the 5-in-1 Apple tree grow best?
The 5-in-1 Apple tree requires a number of chill hours, so it will grow best in zones 5-8. This tree is adaptable to many soil types and will grow in full to partial sun. Only reaching up to 15 feet in height, it will grow in smaller spaces than some larger trees, and picking your fruit has never been easier.
Is the 5-in-1 Apple tree easy to grow organically?
Yes. These trees are not usually bothered by pests and diseases that would cause you to have to spray harsh chemicals on your tree. Keep the area around your tree free from weeds, and if you fertilize, use an organic option.
How much fruit will I get?
You can expect up to 12 bushels of fruit each year, beginning in year 2-3. This is the equivalent of several hundred pounds of apples during the fruiting season.
What does the fruit taste like?
Each of the fruits has its own unique taste. Apples store very well, especially when refrigerated, and they make tasty, healthy snacks. The Yellow Delicious is a juicy and sweet variety, without some of the tartness that other apples may have. Use this one for snaking and baking. The McIntosh has a softer texture than some other apples, and a mildly tart flavor. They have a very long shelf life. The Gravenstein is a crispy apple with a sweet flavor. It is often used to make applesauce. The Winesap is a lesser known heirloom apple variety, but it is big on taste. This tangy, tart fruit is often paired with cheeses or wines. The Yellow Transparent apple has thin, almost see-through skin, hence its name. It has a light texture and very sweet flavor, and is often used to make juices.
Pollination & Fruiting Season
Because you will get three varieties of apples on one tree it will pollinate itself. So, only one tree is necessary to bear fruit. Each variety will begin ripening at a different time, giving you continuous fruit. You can expect to be harvesting fruit late Summer through the Fall.
Best time to plant
Plant your new tree upon arrival so that it can begin to get acclimated to its new home. You can plant it at any time, as long as the ground isn't frozen. We recommend planting as soon as possible so that it gets a jumpstart on fruit production!
