The heights we list are after we prune your tree.

Many Nurseries advertise heights before they prune, then cut off several feet before shipping. While this reduces their shipping cost, it gives their customer a shorter tree than they bargained for. The tree will likely need an extra year to grow back and to produce fruit.

We prune your tree throughout its life. This process takes us longer, but gives you more branches and quicker production.

Plus, we don't include the pot or root length in our measurements. This gives you an extra 1-2 ft. in tree size.

Our larger trees are usually one to two years older than our smaller ones and will typically give you results the first full season.

With its textbook apple shape and crisp, sweet flavor, Jonathan apples are a favorite of apple lovers everywhere.

Apples aside, there are plenty of good reasons to include a Jonathan Apple Tree in your landscape, especially the colors. In the spring, pale pink flowers will bloom in abundance, complimenting the deep green foliage throughout the tree. Summer ends and ushers in a productive harvest of bright red apples that hang beautifully among the thick green leaves. Later in the fall, after the flowers and apples are gone, your tree will turn on a magnificent show of color changes ranging from orange to red and yellow.

Excellent eaten fresh off your tree or baked in pies, they make wonderful cider and brilliant candy apples.

It's Easy to Plant your Jonathan Apple Tree

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

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

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Jonathan 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 Jonathan 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.

how long till fruit is produced?
A shopper on Jun 1, 2014
Best Answer: I just bought trees last spring.We had no apples last year. We bought 20 apple trees and 2 died. There were many flowers/ blooms this spring which shows where the apples will grows. The trees need to get more size/strength to hold those apples so I've been told by an Amish apple grower with experience to take most of the apples off while small. So maybe the third or fourth year you'll really see a decent number of apples.Get ..Backyard Fruit Production by David Schlabach. Must have book! Pruning and spraying routine is important. I hired someone that grows apples for his business to help me with my first pruning.
