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.
• The top choice for apples
• Produces fruit FAST!
• Can be grown organically, without pesticides
Craving an apple? Replace the long drive to the supermarket with a quick walk to your backyard!
Red Fujis are America's top choice for apples in supermarkets… but you can grow these sweet, crisp apples organically.
Known for their exceptional eating quality and great for baking.
Also, the sweetness of Red Fuji Apples makes it a perfect snack. Even better when included in a salad!
Fuji apples usually ripen in October and enjoy a long storage life. They perform best in Growing Zones 6-9.
Our larger Fuji trees have been carefully pruned, over the past year, to promote extra branches. More branches mean more fruit, a healthier tree and faster apple production. This pruning has caused some of our trees in the nursery to produce apples already!
Most nurseries sell tall, thin trees with no branches – these are called "whips." They can take several years to fruit and will generally be less productive when mature.
You get the healthiest, fastest producing tree possible. Your Dwarf Fuji tree is easy to harvest!
Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Fuji 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.
Next, separate the roots of your Fuji 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.
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 Fuji 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.
