Worth its Weight in Golden Apples

Picture stacks of Golden apples surrounded by lush, deep green leaves growing vertically even in the tightest of spaces. That's the Golden Columnar Apple and it's divine. With no branches to inhibit its upward growth, this vine-like tree is highly ornamental, almost resembling something you'd put up for the holidays. A natural dwarf, the tree will not exceed 12 feet, but the apples themselves are quite sizable and will fill your tree in great numbers . Add gorgeous white flowers to the color mix of striking green foliage and bright yellow apples and you've got a winning combination that's like a living decoration.

The Big Apple with Tremendous Flavor

After you take in the beauty and fullness of all the Golden Columnar Apples clinging to your tree, pluck one off and take a crunchy bite. Be sure to have a napkin on hand to catch the sweet juice that drips as you sink your teeth into the white flesh. This incredible fruit is firm, sweet and delicious. Their refreshing flavor is great right off the tree and wonderful when baked. Use your Golden Apples to make homemade cider just like they did in the old days.

With the great taste and good looks of the Golden Columnar Apple tree, make sure to order yours today.

Golden Columnar Apple Tree Pollination

Golden Columnar Apple Trees are partially self-fertile. However, you will receive a much larger crop if pollinated by the following apple trees...
•  Red Columnar Apple Tree •  Green Columnar 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.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Golden Columnar Apple Tree

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

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

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Golden Columnar 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 Golden Columnar Apple Tree again after the transplant is complete.

if I grow this tree in doors in a pot, how big a pot should it be, 24x 24?
