Malus is easy to grow and adapts to most conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

Our 2 gallon potted Apple trees are generally 3 years old, 4-5 ft tall, approximately 1 inch caliper trunk and likely will produce fruit one year after planting. All varieties are grafted to semi-dwarf root stock, a great choice to produce a medium size tree with good growing vigor. All apple trees require a pollinator for best production.
