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. Keep trees at less than 10 feet to allow for easy care and harvest.
