Granny Smith Apple Trees are fast growing, so you can pick delicious fruit in a fraction of the time.
They ripen in early November, and keep their unique tart flavor through winter and even spring!
Granny Smith Apples can be used for almost anything... meals, snacks, or desserts... and you don't have to wait 3 to 5 years to enjoy your fruit!
The Granny Smith Apple's firm, crisp skin rewards you for biting into it. Its pleasant tart flavor makes it versatile enough to be cooked with almost anything.
Your Granny Smith apple trees have been pruned back to promote more branching. More branches mean more fruit, earlier production, stronger limbs and a healthier tree. Some of our apple trees have already produced apples in our nursery!
Most nurseries sell tall, skinny stems with no branches – these are referred to as "whips". They can take several years to fruit and will generally be less productive when mature.
Our trees are pruned back and trained to develop a branching structure. This process takes more work and an extra year, but the difference you experience is dramatic.
With proper care, you will be able to start picking apples after the first season, or as soon as the first year under optimal conditions.
Save thousands by shopping in the convenience of your own home instead of paying a landscaper for trees that struggle.
Receive well developed, large trees and shrubs that thrive in your area. Varieties that are easy to grow, long lived, and trouble free. Your plants are clearly marked for size, pruned to a nice pleasing shape, and are delivered right to your doorstep.
We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.
Some nurseries charge you for a taller tree then chop 1/3 off, so it will fit in a shorter box. This saves them on shipping but can harm your tree and make you wait longer for it to grow back.
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Granny Smith Apple Tree.
If you're planting a hedge, mark out a visual guide by placing stakes five to six feet apart and looping string around them. Plant the where the stakes are and they'll grow together to make a dense privacy screen.
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.
Next, separate the roots of your Granny Smith 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.
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 Granny Smith 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.
