    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    By growing these trees in burlap bags, the roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around a pot. This forces these trees to put out thousands of fine hair roots. These roots bring moisture and nutrients into the plants. This means you get a tree that will become established quicker and provide you with superior and faster growth.

    These will be the easiest trees you have ever planted! Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!

Big Taste Comes in Small Apples

The sweetest, crispiest fresh apple around! If you think that apples are nothing special, you haven’t tried a Pixie Crunch. These small apples are even sweeter than the popular Honeycrisp apples, and they break away from the core with a satisfying snap. The texture is dense and crisp, and the flavor is kid-pleasingly sweet with just a hint of tartness. This is the best possible apple for fresh eating in September.

Great for no-sugar-added baking. Imagine picking a basketful of beautiful red apples from your backyard tree and bringing them inside to bake a homemade pie. There’s no guilt required to bake these fruits: Pixie Crunch apples are so sweet that you’ll need only a sprinkle of added sugar in your recipes.

Big harvests! A standard Pixie Crunch begins to bear fruit in its third year of growth, and fully mature trees can yield between 200 and 400 pounds of fresh apples that ripen over a period of about three weeks each fall. Pixie Crunch apples can be stored for up to two months in cool conditions, but if you still can’t eat them all, they make wonderful apple juice and can also be used to make sugar-free applesauce for canning.

Beautiful spring blossoms. Pixie Crunch apple trees add a lovely touch to your landscape in the spring, when they are covered with delicate, white blossoms that feature a pink blush. Pixie Crunch apples require a nearby pollinator to set fruit, so choose another apple variety that blossoms mid-season to encourage cross-pollination. You can also rely on nearby white-blossomed crabapple trees as a pollinator.

Great disease resistance. Pixie Crunch apples were specially bred at Purdue University and were introduced in 1993. Though not an heirloom, these trees were designed to be resistant to disease, including apple scab and fire blight. If there was ever an apple you could try to grow organically, this tree might just be the one.

An apple a day keeps the doctor away! You won’t have any trouble getting kids to eat their fruit with Pixie Crunch apples around. These sweet little pommes are full of Vitamin C and fiber, which reduce inflammation and support a heart-healthy lifestyle, so you can rest assured that you’re providing family and friends a healthful, delicious snack.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Pixie Crunch Apple Tree (Low-Chill)



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Pixie Crunch Apple Tree (Low-Chill).

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 Pixie Crunch Apple Tree (Low-Chill) 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 Pixie Crunch Apple Tree (Low-Chill) again after the transplant is complete.
