Planting & Care

Apples tolerate a wide range of soil types, but like all fruit trees grow best in well-drained, loamy soil. Provide full sun favoring the morning sun with at least 8 hours of direct sunlight. Apple favor higher humidity's and moderate summer temperatures, in hot dry climates protect the tree from sunburn by providing protection from the late afternoon sun. Either by providing shade or with whitewashing the trunk. Water at least twice a week for the first year. Keep the soil evenly moist, but not wet. Mulch the tree to 3 to 4 inches deep and and 3 to 4 feet outside the canopy of the tree. To keep root cool and cut down on soil evaporation. Apples benefit from pruning to maintain size and structure. Honeycrisp can be a rangy grower and requires regular pruning. Keep trees at less than 10 feet to allow for easy care and harvest.
