Grow 4 Kinds of Apples on a Single Tree

Enjoy 5 Months of Fresh, Delicious Apples These trees are amazing. Four popular apple varieties are grafted together to give you a single tree that produces from early summer right into fall. So instead of getting all you apples at once, you spread out your harvest for almost half the year.

Turns a Small Corner of Your Yard Into a Mini-Fruit Factory
You get bushels and bushels of apples from a compact 10 to 15 ft. tree. It takes about as much area as a large rose bush. Perfect for small yards. The different varieties on your tree pollinate each other, so you don't have to depend on other apple trees being in the area.

Save Hundreds of Dollars Year after Year Stop paying a fortune for organic apples. You can easily grow your own without harmful chemicals.

These Sturdy, High Quality Trees Produce the First Season The years of hand pruning, grafting and skill that goes into raising these trees is phenominal. They are truly works of art. You get thicker branching, lower on the tree. This not only makes it easier and safer to pick, but can produce as much as twice the fruit as a normal tree.

Because of the amount of work and time it takes to produce these trees... we only have a limited number of them. They will quickly sell out, so we recommend that you place your order soon. For even more fruit variety, you can add the 5 in 1 Cherry tree and the 4 in 1 Pear tree.


4-in-1 Apple Tree Pollination

4-in-1 Apple Trees are completely self-fertile. Although adding another Apple Tree will benefit your production in the long run. Varieties listed below are perfect pollinators.
       
•  Anna Southern Apple Tree •  Winesap Apple Tree
•  Granny Smith Apple Tree •  McIntosh Apple Tree
•  Honeycrisp Apple Tree •  Pink Lady Apple Tree
•  Red Delicious Apple Tree •  Yellow Delicious Apple Tree
•  Gala Apple Tree  

Crab Apple Trees also make some of the best pollinators for Fruiting Apple Trees. Because they bloom for a long period of time, they produce an abundance of pollen that are compatible with most Fruiting Apple Tree varieties.

For more information on apple pollination, view our Apple Pollination Guide.

Was excited to receive my 4-in-1 Apple tree. Was looking it over and realized that there was only 3 main branches on it. I was missing the McIntosh Apples branch. I called and they said it was unacceptable and they are sending me a new tree! Thanks for standing by your product.

Tree arrived quickly, safe and sound, bare root, planted within an hour. Already starting to leaf, and looks very healthy. Tree much smaller, not 5 to 6 feet, more like 3 feet tall. I will buy again. Do not purchase the Planting Mix package or the Plant food package. Far too expensive, could get four times as much at the local H&G store for the same price
December 31, 2012
Aside from 2 fruit cocktail trees, I also purchased a 4 in 1 apple, and this one has been disappointing. It only had one apple (golden delicious). The others did not bloom. Maybe next year it will do better, as it will be older. It needs to be staked and have each different fruit be separated, or it all grows together

Got my Apple 2 years ago started fruiting last year,and so impressed!!!!. This year it is loaded with different Varieties of apples all over it.Thank you pam,and co you guys are amazing. When you buy from other nurseries you get whips, that look like a stick that somone brought in the house. They gave me a well developed apple tree that was ready to fruit by the first ,or second season. This year i'm ready to enjoy some fresh applesauce with my granny smith apples.

ARRIVED IN GREAT SHAPE. BUT, 24 HOURS AFTER IT WAS PLANTED IT WAS UPROOTED BY VERY STRONG WINDS, 70 MPH. BECAUSE OF OTHER FALLEN TREES IS WAS A WEEK BEFORE IT WAS REPLANTED. AN HOUR LATER ANOTHER STORM KNOCKED IT DOWN AGAIN. AFTER PLANTING THE THIRD TIME, WE WENT INTO A DROUGHT AND WATERING BAN. EVEN WITH THE WORST START IT STAYED GREEN, THE TWO APPLES THAT FORMED DID NOT GROW. LATER IT SET ON A FEW NEW BLOSSOMS. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT IT CAN DO NEXT YEAR.

I just received the 4 in 1 apple tree. It was in great shape and had clearly been pruned correctly for some time. It made me realize just how poorly cared for other fruit trees that I bought elsewhere were. It even had a couple of baby apples already on it.I plan on purchasing more fruit trees now that I see what a quality product fast-growing-trees provides.

Brought a 5 in one apple. It had different apple varieties on it(Granny Smith,Fuji,Gala,Early summer red and for free they gave me Braeburn). Its fruiting now(the year after I brought it.) and I am so pleased. When it came it was a 3 year old tree and it was about as tall as I am( it was 5'6 1/2. I totally recommend buying this product. They are also willing to help you over the phone if your tree has a issue or problem.I also brought my orange tree from here and in the first year it blossomed like crazy and it was heavily branched which meant more fruit for me

Received this tree (bare root), planted it right away. The tree was perfect in shape and the grafts all looked good, however it did not have any buds, and has since died. FGT is shipping me a replacement. I hope the replacement is alive and healthy and my experience with the replacement will be better than my first one

Received the 4-in-1 Apple Tree very promptly in superb packaging and within a day it was planted in freshly toiled ground on a warm April morning.Remembered to water it right away and it already has flowers and many buds. Looking forward to the first apple. I have bought several trees from F-G-T and they have all arrived in great condition and are doing very well. My challenge will be the deer that live in the area as they like apples too.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your 4-in-1 Apple Tree


4-in-1 Apple Tree Planting Diretions Plant your 4-in-1 Apple Tree in are area that receives full to partial sunlight. Make sure that your Apple Tree doesn't sit in a low area of the yard that collects standing water. Your 4-in-1 Apple Tree will adapt to your natural soil heavy if it's sandy or heavy in clay as long as it's well draining.

Your Apple Tree won't need any extra water unless you're experiencing drought like conditions. Usually rain fall provides enough moisture. Every Spring fertilize your 4-in-1 Apple Tree with a well balanced fertilizer, like formula 10-10-10.

Blooms will emerge on your 4-in-1 Apple Tree every Spring, and fruit will be produced in the early Summer into the Fall. The Apples are ready to be harvested when they reach their full color, for example Grammy Smith Apples are green and Yellow Delicious Apples are a pale yellow color. When Apples drop for your tree this is a sign that they're ripe.

Why did you choose this?
Fast-Growing-Trees.com Store
The reason to choose the 4-1 Apple Trees is simple... self pollinating and different types of apples. I also like how these are grafted trees where as my local nursery grows from seeds. Any reseach in this area will show the benefits. I will leave another review two week after my trees are in the ground.

What time of year can these trees be planted? I am in Zone 6.
mostlysunny on Dec 4, 2014
Best Answer: They will not ship you the tree until March. I am in zone 6 as well. I ordered the tree in January and received it at the end of march. They time the delivery so that you can plant it in it's prime time as soon as it is delivered. I planted mine the first week of April 2015.

Hello why cant this tree be shipped to California?
Marco D on May 30, 2014
4-in-1 Apple Tree
4-in-1 Apple Tree
4-in-1 Pear Tree
4-in-1 Pear Tree
Best Answer: California is a major fruit producer and battles pests like the fruit fly every year. The state has taken pains to establish quarantine rules to prevent out-of-state pests from colonizing in-state groves. These pests can hide in trees from private homes, too, so even a run-of-the-mill residential move is subject to quarantine laws.

Importing citrus trees is illegal even if the trees are meant for your own home; the risk of spreading existing citrus pests into California is too great. The California Department of Food and Agriculture maintains a website dedicated to quarantines that lists the item, the states from which it's banned and why. For example, trees in the Prunus genus, which includes peaches, plums and apricots, can't be brought into California from Alabama, Arkansas, West Virginia, South Carolina, Tennessee, Oklahoma, Georgia and Mississippi because of the risk of spreading peach rosette disease.

I am listed as zone 9 on this website, but on others, I am in Zone 8. Can I plant this 4 in 1 apple tree here in Fulshear, Texas?
Pam A on Jul 5, 2015
Best Answer: these apple trees are low quality. Spend less on a big healthy 4 in 1 from your local greenhouse. I had 2 shipped. One only had 1 of the four graphs living and dies soon after planting. I replaced it for less with one twice the size from the store. It looks great and produces. The other 4 in 1 is in it's 3rd season. It looks about the same as when I planted it....poor. They do not ship high quality plants.

how long to grow to full size?
A shopper on May 31, 2014
Best Answer: Really depends on a lot of things, weather, planting, watering, some yearly fertilizing but I will say eight to ten years after receiving from Fast-Growing Tree. Nothing matures overnight, takes time, care, and watching over.I bought my 4 in 1 Apple tree plus a few other, in August 2012, all arrived in good shape, did not plant till a week after they got here, watered every day before planting. After planting for the first two months watered every other day, the year 2013 watered twice a week, up to now, watering area 3 feet diameter by 10" deep, fill with wood chips to hold moister, takes about ten gallons. Right now stands about seven feet, same with the Cocktail Fruit tree, had flowers last year, but hard winds knocked all blooms off, made kind of cover around it last year, had flowers this March, got some marble size fruit, but lost it to some hail this year. So now I am setting some cloth covers over them see what will come to next year.

Is this apple tree self pollinating?
A shopper on Aug 2, 2014
Best Answer: Apple trees in general are not self-pollinating. They typically require a different type of apple tree to pollinate them. The four in one cross pollinates itself and will not require the purchase or planting of another tree. My tree had about 5 apples the first year it was planted and has about 150 + apples on it now. I would consider it a good purchase.

We haven't noticed any problems with any type of disease so far. We had a lot of blossoms this spring, but had several late cold snaps which may have affected its production of other apples.

I purchased this tree last spring, a year and a half ago now, but it still hasn't flowered or produced fruit. It was planted in a container with your tree fertilizer added to it. Tree's leaves look healthy. I just read it should flower within first season of purchase. What could be wrong?
Vanpinni on Oct 8, 2015
Best Answer: There are several things that can be a factor in your tree not flowering. Sunlight, Age, and fertilization are key factors. Also, if you experienced a warmer winter than normal that could delay your trees ability to flower for a year or so. Apple trees need to gain enough chill hours during the winter in order to flower in the spring.

You may also want to have your soil tested to make sure there is not to much nitrogen in the soil. This will cause the tree to focus more on pushing out leaves rather than blooms. If you notice yellowing leaves often on the tree there may be a zinc deficiency. I hope this information is helpful. Thank you for contacting us.

what care is needed?
frank on Nov 29, 2015
Best Answer: Watering. Your apple tree will need to be watered regularly to make certain that the root system becomes well established. The soil surrounding your tree should be moist, but never saturated. Light green leaves can be a sign of over watering, while drooping leaves can be a sign of both over or under watering.
Fertilization. Your apple tree will benefit from being fertilized annually with a 10-10-10 formula.
Weed Control. Any weeds that are present around the area of your tree should be removed immediately. Insulate the tree with 3-4 inches of mulch, and be sure to replenish as needed.
Pests & Disease. The best defense is a healthy tree. Good soil, proper feeding and adequate water are vital to its success.
Pruning. Your apple tree will need very little pruning during its first few years. Mature apple trees require annual pruning.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
