GET SOLID PRODUCTION WITH GOOD TASTE

We're not going out on a limb when we tell you you'll absolutely love all the positive attributes of the Scarlett Sentinel Columnar Apple tree.

For starters, the tree grows arrow straight and has virtually no branches! That makes it the perfect choice for confined or tight areas. Also, this tree is as sturdy and hardy as any apple tree around. It's been known to withstand summer temperatures of well over 100 degrees and still yield healthy and productive harvests with delicious fruit as soon as the first year of planting.

Frankly, Scarlet combines Good Taste and Great Eye Appeal

Flanked by shiny, deep green leaves, the Scarlet Sentinel's abundant apples hang like plump, red and green bells on an unfurled Christmas wreath. It's a rich look of fruity goodness that will drape in great numbers during several productive, annual harvests. Their sweet and aromatic flavor lends itself well to sliced cheese and a glass of your favorite wine. Crisp and juicy, the Scarlet apple boasts both good looks and satisfying taste throughout the growing season.

Diversity in the Landscape

Now that you know the Scarlet Sentinel will exceed your expectations of solid production and good taste, it's also nice to know that this tree is virtually trouble free. Unaffected by bugs, pests and disease, even windy locations are no hindrance to its successful growth and yields. As if all that's not enough, snow white blossoms will emerge late from this dwarf that won't grow much beyond 10 feet tall.


Red Columnar Apple Tree Pollination

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

So far so good. The tree has survived two hail storms and 100F temperatures. New growth is obvious, and hopefully I'll see fruit next year.

Red Columnar Apples
Red Apple tree came in few months ago along with green apple tree and avocado tree. Its grown almost a foot higher in the last 2 months. Don't know if its the awesome New England climate or the all natural manure. Either way I received a very healthy tree that adapted to the atmosphere of my garden very well. I can't wait till I only need to go to the comforts of my back yard for my apple picking pleasure!

Has begun to put on new leaves and develop new roots in the soil. Came with very short roots and questioned it surviving to next year. So far it is surprising me with its new growth.

Apple treee doing well
The tree arrived in moderate condition, but after planting it in my yard it has come around and is doing well. It had a few blooms, but I picked them off as wanted all the energy to go into establishing a good root system. I look forward tp a harvest next year!

Planting & Care



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



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


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

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 Emerald Green Thuja 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 Emerald Green Thuja again after the transplant is complete.

MARIA V on Oct 29, 2015
Does it grow well and mature in pots? Will it self-pollinate?
Meera S on Nov 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, grows well in large pot. Is self-pollinating.
What size pot is a 3-4 foot red columnar apple tree in? Or would it be in, if it were shipped in a pot?
Jonathan V on Apr 4, 2015
I bought 1 of each. A red, golden and green. Will they pollinate each other?
kyle w on Apr 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes they will pollinate one another.
How wide and deep of a pot will a 8 ft tree need to thrive?
Tim D on Jun 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: A pot between 16 - 23 inches in diameter would be great for your Red Columnar Apple Tree.
I have decided to plant my Apple tree in larger half barrel. I think it is 26 inches. Does this leave room for some sort of companion plant to place around the base of would you recommend against this?
Mark J on Nov 13, 2014
I'm apartment patio gardening so my patio has a ceiling. Will this tree produce if I keep it clipped at 8ft?
Genesis H on Mar 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Absolutely it should. I am planning on doing the same thing just for the sake of easy picking.
does this tree self pollinate?
A shopper on Jun 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I've read yes and also no. We planted last fall and have 1 apple this year. I also planted a Fuji Apple tree close by. It has 2 apples. So the jury is still out. I'd say two trees of different variety that bloare better than one
are the Columnar Apple Tree disease and pest resistant?
kevin n on Jan 7, 2015
When do the columnar apple tree apples ripen? Mine are getting big and some have fallen - just don't want to leave them on the tree too long or pick too early. Help please. I am in area code 97408 and we have had a HOT summer
Diane L on Aug 14, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They are most likely ready..try a bite of one..if it doesn't taste right..then pick the ones you have..lay them on a cloth napkin then cover them with another one (don't let them touch) keep them out of the sun..in a few days they should be ripe. But they might be done.mmy came early this year as well
Will this tree produce fruit indoors overwinter ?
Melissa A on Nov 10, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No, it would be best outdoors so it could get the needed 500 chill hours, to produce fruit the next season. It needs 500 hours from Nov-Feb where the temperature gets 40-45 degrees
For the Columnar Apple Tree what size plant container do you recommend? I have a small space on my patio big enough for two of these trees.
Jon E on Oct 22, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I would recommend at least a 15 gallon pot.
can you plant this tree in the fall in MI?
Cristy D on Jul 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't see why not, although I think planting it now, would be a bit better....just as long as you plant before any possible sign of frost sets in should be fine....just keep it mind it takes a few years before the fruit appears(hopefully) Mine's is n it's second year, with little space so if you've lots of space, good growing area maybe it would take less time and growth more guaranteed....also note that you must have another apple tree for cross pollination. Good Luck!
What does this apple taste closest to compared to other apple trees? (Red delicious, Fuji, Pink Lady, etc.).
H J on May 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It is said to taste similar to a McIntosh.
When does it bear fruit, and how big is a "big yield"?
April on Jul 23, 2014
BEST ANSWER: This tree is bearing fruit now..should be ready by October. Mine is rather young but she is yielding 23 apples. Amazing tree
I'm limited on space. What other tree could I used to pollinated it ????
A shopper on Jun 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Ted Red Columnar Apple Tree is self fertile, so you don't need another tree. Two Red Columnar Apple Trees would work very well to pollinate each other.

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
