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.
