    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!

Planting and Caring Guide

Planting Instructions: Find a place in your yard that has well-drained soil and gets direct sunlight for 6-8 hrs a day. Remove all grass and weeds from a diameter of 3-4 ft. Dig a hole twice the size of the rootball and 2 ft. deep. Place your Cox Orange Pippin Apple tree in the hole, spreading its roots. Cover back with soil and water deeply to settle roots. Add a layer of mulch to retain moisture and prevent weed growth. You may also stake your tree to encourage upright growth. Place 3-4 wooden stakes, that are 1-2 ft. taller than the tree, around it. Then use garden wire or twine to loosely tie the stakes around the tree.

Watering: Depending on how much rain your area gets, you may need to water your tree every 10 days. If you get less than an inch of rain every 10 days, water the soil around the root line. Never overwater your apple tree.

Fertilization: The best way to fertilize your tree is to take a sample of soil to your local garden center and then amend the ph accordingly. It's best to fertilize in late winter or early spring. As an alternative you can buy commercial fertilizer produced for fruiting trees and follow the instructions.

Pruning: Prune your tree when it is dormant in late winter by removing all dead leaves and branches. It is best to prune the branches in such a way that the entire tree receives an equal amount of light.

Pollination: The Cox Orange Pippin Apple Tree does not self pollinate, so you must plant it alongside other varieties of apple trees to increase the harvest. The best varieties to plant with are Braeburn and the Golden Delicious varieties.

Disease Prevention: The Cox Orange Pippin is susceptible to many disease. The best way to prevent these diseases is to remain persistent about inspecting your tree and immediately removing diseased branches. Always remove dead leaves, fallen apples and plant debris from the ground below the tree after harvest. During the summer, spray the tree every other week with fungicide.

Harvesting: Your tree will bear fruit between the 2nd and 5th year. Cox Orange Pippin typically harvest in September, but these dates vary slightly depending on your climate and tree. To know if your apple is ripe, shake the apple and listen. Cox apples have loose seeds inside the core and will rattle when ripe.

Storage: Cox Orange Pippin Apples do not store for very long and are best eaten fresh. Sauces and jams can easily be made from Cox apples and are usually so sweet they don’t require added sugar.
