Cider Apple will Quench your Thirst for Beauty

Tall and wide-spreading, the canopy of the Cider Apple Tree is a marvel in your garden or yard, especially when bushels of apples begin to fill its branches.  

A blush mix of pale red and yellow green, the apples add visual appeal that you will enjoy with each new harvest. 

Surrounded by large leathery green leaves at the stem, Cider Apple is as aesthetically pleasing in the landscape as it is flavorful in the kitchen.  In fact, placing a bowl filled with Cider Apples in your favorite room makes a wonderful and fragrant seasonal accent.

The Apple that put Juicing on the Map

There’s nothing quite like sitting outside on a cool, fall night and embracing a cup of hot cider.  Whether you prefer hot cider to warm you during the holidays, or the sweet, chilled taste of cider on a sultry evening, the Apple Cider Apple Tree, delivers perfect, refreshingly sweet apple cider with every batch.  

Although you can enjoy eating Cider Apples fresh off your tree, their true magnificence lies in the sweet, delicious flavor of their juice, said to be the best in the world.  Wonderful alone or excellent when added to enhance the flavor of other drinks, Cider Apple juice will quench your thirst like no other fruit in the garden.  

Aside from its incredible nectar, use Cider Apples to bake traditional apple pies that the whole family will look forward to with each harvest.  With so much from one tree, make your next fruit tree an Apple Cider Apple.

Apple Cider Apple Tree Pollination

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

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Apple Cider 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 Apple Cider 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 Apple Cider 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.

Will my Trees 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.

Most Fruiting Plants 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.
