4-in-1 Apple Tree

Grow 4 Kinds of Apples on a Single Tree

Height:

The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.

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 4 in 1 Cherry tree and the 4 in 1 Pear tree.

It's Easy to Plant your 4-in-1 Apple Tree

Specific Directions for 4-in-1 Apple Tree

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.


Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your 4-in-1 Apple Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your 4-in-1 Apple Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your 4-in-1 Apple Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

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.

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

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

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.

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.

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

So far I have had the tree for half a season. I watered it every day like I was supposed to and it is doing fine. I have had one single apple and it was delicious. I look forward to a few more apples next year.

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

disease resistant ?
A shopper on Jul 26, 2014
Best Answer: We planted the tree in the winter of 2013. So far, we have only gotten apples on the yellow delicious branch. We have 9 apples this year. 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.

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.

Is it better to get the planting mix or the fertilizer tablets or both together?
Robin S on Jul 12, 2014
Best Answer: I use a designated fruit tree fertilizer for apple trees. Apple tress are very difficult to grow organically. I now use a once a year treatment for insects and fungal diseases. I also spray with a dormant oil at bud break in the late winter.I still have problems with Japanese beetle damage.

Will my 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.





Potted Tree Dormant Tree Bare Root Tree

Most dormant trees shipped in the
late fall through spring arrive bare root

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.


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

Tree before pruning Tree after pruning Rose before pruning Rose after pruning
Maple Tree before pruning Maple Tree after pruning 3 gallon Knockout Rose before pruning 3 gallon Knockout Rose after pruning

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.
