-t- Dorsett Apple Tree (Low-Chill) (Pollinator)
Dorsett Apple Tree (Low-Chill)

Easily Grown in the South

Dorsett Apple Tree (Low-Chill)
  • Produces large, delicious apples early in the season
  • Up to 2 additional annual harvests in warmer climates
  • Southern tree that will flourish in zones 5-9
  • Resistant to most diseases like scab, fungus and mildew

Golden Goodness with a hint of blush

If you enjoy the sweet, crisp taste of Golden Delicious apples then you'll love the Dorsett Apple. This incredible tree with the southern flair is hardy enough to grow anywhere from zones 5-9.

The Dorsett's skin is splashed with an orange-red blush hue, giving your yard a picturesque look as the apples emerge from your tree.

Of all the apple varieties, the Dorsett is the first to bloom as early as mid-January in areas with milder winter climates. That means you can expect an abundance of enormous apples as early as late June. And the Dorsett is easy to care for. Just give it plenty of sun and watch it thrive.

A Taste of the Old South

Best Apple Tree for the South

From Florida to California and all points in between, if you live anywhere in the South, the Anna Apple tree is your best choice to grow delicious apples. That's because the Anna Apple adapts well to hot, southern conditions.

Its low chill requirement is unmatched by any other variety, enabling the tree to thrive in warmer climates not typically associated with growing apples.

A favorite along the Gulf and Atlantic coasts, this compact beauty produces fast and productive harvests and is virtually problem free. Growing fruit is a breeze because the Anna Apple is self-fertile so it needs no pollinator. But don't let that stop you from planting another low-chill apple tree close by.

The results? Even more delicious apples than you can imagine.

Apple Lovers Everywhere Agree: The Proof is in the Taste

The crisp, juicy, flavor of an Anna Apple will rival any northern grown variety. In fact, its incredible taste has often drawn comparisons to Granny Smith apples early in the ripening stage.

Soon after it fully ripens, the Anna develops an even sweeter taste similar to a Red Delicious. It's like having two apples on one amazing tree!

Wondering what you'll do with all those amazing apples? Don't worry. Annas store well for up to 2 months. Perfect for making fresh, homemade pies, apple pancakes or baked apples topped with brown sugar, nothing beats just sinking your teeth into a crunchy Anna apple plucked straight off your own tree.

Anna Apple Tree (Low-Chill) Pollination

Anna Apple Trees (Low-Chill) are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional pollinator will drastically increase the size of your crop. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...

Crabapple Trees also make some of the best pollinators for Fruiting Apple Trees. Because they bloom for a long period of time and produce an abundance of pollen that are compatible with most Fruiting Apple Tree varieties.

Happy gardener waiting for the rewards.
Bought my tree from a local nursery here in the inland empire of California. The tree wintered well and got a wonderful fruit set from the first spring bloom. Can't wait to taste the apples.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Anna 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 Anna 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 Anna 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 Anna Apple Tree (Low-Chill) again after the transplant is complete.

We live in NW Florida, still receive some 20 degree winter, I have a Honeycrisp already and just want to see how they do. Never planted fruit trees here, just regular and tropical plants.
Kristina B on Apr 5, 2017
I choose Anna Apple Tree because it is self fertile and in grows in zone 7B where I live. I never have any luck in producing apples and I hope this one will bear fruits soon. It says on the description that it will bear fruit in its first year.

How tall will the tree get?
Bonnie B on Jul 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The mature height is 20-30ft tall.
When can you plant this tree in Louisiana?
Jennifer P on Jan 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Planting in fall/winter/early spring, while they are in their dormant stage helps them get their roots, established without having to give nutrients to the rest of the tree. Also, with extra care you can plant in the summer, by planting in the evening after the sun goes down, so it will not get leaf burn. Giving it extra water and putting a 3-4 inch of mulch (keeping a few inches away from the trunk) to help retain moisture during hot dry weather.
Anna Southern - When does it bloom and when do the fruit ripen?

Can this tree grow in a large pot?
michael w on Jun 21, 2015

Should I thin my tree? I have 10 apples in a cluster at the tip of the branches. The apples do not progress to full size.
A shopper on Jun 17, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Prune back the smaller branches and remove a few of your apples. This will send energy to the remaining apples and make them larger.
will the 5-6 ft tree produce earlier than the 3-4 ft one?
Bob G on Jul 25, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The 5 to 6 ft tree is older and more mature, it could produce fruit faster than the 3 to 4 foot. However the 3 to 4 foot is at fruit producing age also. Both sizes may take up to a year to get adjusted to their new environments before they produce fruit.
Is the "southern" Anna same as "dwarf"?
A shopper on Sep 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No, their mature height is 20-30ft tall.
How does the Anna Southern Apple Tree pollinate? Do I need two trees or maybe two of different species?
Vincent S on Oct 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for contacting us. The Anna Southern Apple is self-fertile , so it technically does not need a pollinator. However, its always best to have multiple trees for cross pollination to increase fruit yield. The Gala, Pink Lady, Honeycrisp, Red Delicious, McIntosh, Granny Smith, Jonathan, and Yellow Delicious will all cross pollinate with the Anna Southern Apple. I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have additional questions. We can be reached at 1-888-504-2001 option 1.
LEE S on Jun 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Typically spring and fall is the best time to plant in your area.
Will putting coffee grounds around apple trees harm the trees?
Mary M on Apr 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I put coffee grounds, egg shells and banana peels. I mix them into the soil a bit. My Anna Apple was planted last year and has so much new growth. Good luck
Any proper watering instructions and/or tips to help sustain the tree in a zone 9 backyard?
Alex M on Mar 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Your apple tree will need to be watered regularly to make certain that the root system becomes well established. The soil surrounding your tree should be moist, but never saturated. Light green leaves can be a sign of over watering, while drooping leaves can be a sign of both over or under watering.
I purchased two of these and planted them roughly two months ago. Understanding there will be variations with soils and climate, how much should they be expected to grow each year?
Andrew on Jan 5, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Apples can grow 3 feet and up once established.
What varieties are the best pollinators for Annas? We are in south Louisiana.
