Planting & Care

Apples tolerate many soil types, but grow best in well-drained, loamy soil. Apples grow best in full sun where there is cold in winter, moderate summer temperatures, and medium to high humidity. Water regularly, at least weekly. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not wet. Apples benefit from pruning, which is normally carried out while the trees are still dormant in late Winter. Apple trees can live for 100 years or more.
