Jonathan Apple Tree

Apples Great for Snacking, Baking and Cooking


Height:

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.

Johnathan Apple Tree: The Apple of your Eye

Think of an apple that’s plump, juicy and alive with bold, red color. An apple so pleasing both to the eye and the palate, it wouldn’t last the day on your teacher’s desk. The image in your mind is likely a Jonathan apple. Nothing says classic American like apple pie. And the most classic apple to bake them with is the Jonathan. With its textbook apple shape and crisp, sweet flavor, Jonathan apples are a favorite of apple lovers everywhere.

A Productive Tree Ripe with Color

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.

What to do with all those Apples?

The perfect blend of sweet, sharp and tart flavors has made Jonathans one of the most widely sold apples in the country. And it’s no wonder home gardeners love them. Excellent eaten fresh off your tree or baked in pies, they make wonderful cider and brilliant candy apples. Jonathan apples also store longer than most varieties because they maintain their flavor even after being frozen.

All this and Relative Ease to Maintain

Prune your Jonathan Apple Tree just once between February and April. Give it full sun and well-drained soil and it will reward you with a productive and delicious harvest year after year.

Why Buy from Fast Growing Trees?

Save Money

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.

No Chemicals

We shun growth regulators and other chemicals that make plants look good in the stores but struggle to survive once planted.

Large Size

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.

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.
