Tami's thoughts: "This is my favorite apple for eating! Always crisp, sweet with a nice floral finish and very juicy! A smooth texture with a thicker skin. A great apple to bake with, too, but buy extra because you'll want to keep eating them fresh."

   Bloom Time: mid-late Spring
   Mature Height: 12-15 ft

   Zone: 3-8 - One of the best-growing apple trees for Connecticut along with Fuji, Gala, Macoun, and McIntosh.
   Pollination: Cross-pollination by a different variety of mid-late Spring blooming apple tree within 50 feet is key to its growth and success.

Care:

  • Feed twice a year with a slow release fertilizer. Fertilize in early spring before growth starts and late fall after the leaves have fallen and the ground isn't yet frozen. (5 minutes of work)
  • Prune in late winter to remove crossing branches and promote good airflow to encourage fruiting. (5-10 minutes of work)

    Jobes Fertilizer Spikes for Trees & Shrubs - ADD TO ORDER

    Option 2: Jobes fertilizer spikes simplify fertilizing your tree. Per the Jobe's company, "Fertilizer spikes take the mess and guesswork out of plant nutrition." How? The spikes are pre-measured and slowly release into the soil to prevent over fertilization. Additionally, spikes are applies by hammering them beneath ground level, which prevents run-off. Fun fact: Jobes tree spikes are activated by the soil's fungal and bacterial activity (VERY COOL!).
