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.

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.
