    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    These trees are originally grown in a field and naturally have a larger root system than container grown trees. This means you get a plant that will become established quicker and provide you with superior growth in the spring.

    Your tree arrives dormant (sleeping for the winter). Without foliage to support, it doesn't require as much water or nutrients to survive. So transplanting is stress-free.

    If you plant in the winter, your roots will continue to grow and become more established. When spring arrives you will see bright new foliage appearing. 

    These will be the easiest trees you have every planted!  Simply dig your hole, place the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole.  That’s it!

Golden Goodness with a hint of blush

If you enjoy the sweet, crisp taste of Golden Delicious apples then you'll love the Dorsett Apple. This incredible tree with the southern flair is hardy enough to grow anywhere from zones 5-9.

The Dorsett's skin is splashed with an orange-red blush hue, giving your yard a picturesque look as the apples emerge from your tree.

Of all the apple varieties, the Dorsett is the first to bloom as early as mid-January in areas with milder winter climates. That means you can expect an abundance of enormous apples as early as late June. And the Dorsett is easy to care for. Just give it plenty of sun and watch it thrive.

Best Apple Tree for the South

From Florida to California and all points in between, if you live anywhere in the South, the Anna Apple tree is your best choice to grow delicious apples. That's because the Anna Apple adapts well to hot, southern conditions.

Its low chill requirement is unmatched by any other variety, enabling the tree to thrive in warmer climates not typically associated with growing apples.

A favorite along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, this compact beauty produces fast and productive harvests and is virtually problem free. Growing fruit is a breeze because the Anna Apple is self-fertile so it needs no pollinator. But don't let that stop you from planting another low-chill apple tree close by.

The results? Even more delicious apples than you can imagine.

Apple Lovers Everywhere Agree: The Proof is in the Taste

The crisp, juicy, flavor of an Anna Apple will rival any northern grown variety. In fact, its incredible taste has often drawn comparisons to Granny Smith apples early in the ripening stage.

Soon after it fully ripens, the Anna develops an even sweeter taste similar to a Red Delicious. It's like having two apples on one amazing tree!

Wondering what you'll do with all those amazing apples? Don't worry. Annas store well for up to 2 months. Perfect for making fresh, homemade pies, apple pancakes or baked apples topped with brown sugar, nothing beats just sinking your teeth into a crunchy Anna apple plucked straight off your own tree.

Anna Southern Apple Tree Pollination

Anna Southern Apple Trees are partially self-fertile. However, you will receive a much larger crop if pollinated by the following apple trees...
•  Gala 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
•  Dorsett 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.

This tree seems to be holding up well. It came with green leaves on it and continues to thrive. Much more than I can say for some other trees I've purchased from here...

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Anna Apple Tree (Low-Chill)

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Anna Apple Tree (Low-Chill).

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 Anna Apple Tree (Low-Chill) 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 Anna Apple Tree (Low-Chill) again after the transplant is complete.

Should I thin my tree? I have 10 apples in a cluster at the tip of the branches. The apples do not progress to full size.
A shopper on Jun 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Prune back the smaller branches and remove a few of your apples. This will send energy to the remaining apples and make them larger.
Do I need two of them for pollination?
Susanne on Apr 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: According to Fast-Growing-Trees Anna Apple is self pollinating (meaning you do not need another variety/type of tree) but according to my research when I purchased my Anna Apple tree everyone else says it will not pollinate itself and thus needs one of the following varieties of warm climate trees planted with it. DORSETT GOLDEN APPLE, TROPIC SWEET APPLE, JOY’S APPLE (Self Fertile but will Pollinate others in group)
How does the Anna Southern Apple Tree pollinate? Do I need two trees or maybe two of different species?
Vincent S on Oct 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for contacting us. The Anna Southern Apple is self-fertile , so it technically does not need a pollinator. However, its always best to have multiple trees for cross pollination to increase fruit yield. The Gala, Pink Lady, Honeycrisp, Red Delicious, McIntosh, Granny Smith, Jonathan, and Yellow Delicious will all cross pollinate with the Anna Southern Apple. I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have additional questions. We can be reached at 1-888-504-2001 option 1.
LEE S on Jun 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have bought many fruit trees from Fast Growing Trees and have excellent luck planting when they arrive.

will the 5-6 ft tree produce earlier than the 3-4 ft one?
Bob G on Jul 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The 5 to 6 ft tree is older and more mature, it could produce fruit faster than the 3 to 4 foot. However the 3 to 4 foot is at fruit producing age also. Both sizes may take up to a year to get adjusted to their new environments before they produce fruit.

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.
