Sweet Apples from Fragrant Flowering Tree

Versatile Tree Performs Majority of the Year
The Pink Lady Apple does extraordinarily well in hot climates and thrives in colder climates too! It's cold-hardy, heat-resistant, and easy to grow.  Delicious tasting apples aside, the tree puts on a show from spring through fall.

Spring and Summer Beauty
Creamy white to pale pink blossoms appear in the spring and multiply through the summer.  The delicate flowers are a breathtaking contrast against emerald foliage.  You'll find the air around this tree heavily perfumed from the enormous amount of sweet fragrant blooms.

Impressive Autumn Color
If you're looking for a tree that offers fall color, this one is a must-have.  In mid to late October, this tree's foliage comes alive in a fiery explosion of orange, maroon, and blushing yellow hues. 

Long Season and Shelf Life
Your Pink Lady apples will ripen from September through the fall season. This works out perfectly for all your fall and winter holiday baking, as they taste best when stored for a few weeks.  They're perfectly delicious refrigerated up to 6 weeks.  Pink Lady apples are an interesting combination of attractive crimson blush over a base of pale greenish yellow. These are stunning in a bowl as a dining centerpiece during the holidays.

Preferred Apple for Baking
The Pink Lady makes a tasty treat fresh off the tree or in salads and performs equally well when sauced, baked and canned. The delicious fruit is a favorite for bakers that are serious about their apple pies, tarts, and crisps.  Its flesh is creamy light yellow, dense and juicy. Fruit size runs medium to large with a subtle aroma of sweet pear, melon, and cider. Some claim to taste hints of honeydew and of orange.

Good looking tree
Received my tree today. It has been raining since yesterday so today is a good day to plant the tree.
The tree was shipped with the roots in the plastic container, enclosed in a plastic bag. All in a cardboard box. The tree was in very good shape.
I will see how well this apple tree will do in the Panama City, Florida area. I lost all the big Oak trees in my yard to hurricane Michael. I am going to replace the Oak trees with fruit trees. This is my first tree, hope to be eating apples next year.

Happy Apple Trees in Ma
The Pink Lady tree first of all arrived in great condition, my wife said that I won’t even be able to grow apples for I don’t have the greenest of thumbs, I didn’t have to to Fast m-Growing-trees did it for me. The tree came with 1 Apple on it ??. Ok I’m all seriousness the tree was planted the same day and within a week it had new growth and over a month later is thriving very well. It’s pollinator the Honey Crisp was in the same perfect condition. Both were supposed to be 5-6’. They may have been a little bit larger. Very impressed with the over earth and shipping speed with the trees. I highly recommend this company because their product after 2 separate purchases has been great.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Pink Lady® Apple Tree (Low-Chill)

Pink Lady® Apple Tree (Low-Chill) Planting Diretions

The Pink Lady apple tree (Malus domestica ‘Pink Lady’) is a compact apple tree, reaching an overall height of 15-20 feet tall and 8-10 feet wide. This low chill variety is not as cold tolerant as other varieties, only tolerating temperatures down to 0 degrees. This particular apple tree does best in USDA growing zones 6-9 and only requires 200-400 chill hours in order to properly produce fruit. One of the harvest season’s later producing trees, these make great apples for baking, adding a fresh touch to your holiday dessert dishes.

Location: Be sure that the location you plan to plant your tree will receive full sun which means at least six hours of direct sun each day. If the area receives more than half a day’s shade then the tree will not perform well. Drainage is essential so if you have an overabundance of clay, some soil amending may be required. The pH range of the soil (for the best results) is 6.0-6.5 and a soil test can determine this easily. Testing kits can be found at your local gardening center to test the acidity of your soil. If the soil is mostly sand then amending peat moss into the sand will help with moisture retention otherwise more frequent irrigation will be needed.

Planting Directions (in ground): Now that you have found your ideal planting location for the Pink Lady apple there are some basic steps for planting the tree. You can raise the acidity of the soil if necessary using lime or wood ash. To lower the pH you can amend sulfur, sphagnum peat or aluminum/iron sulfate into the soil.

1) Make your planting site hole twice the width of the root ball and just as deep.
2) Gently comb your hands over the root ball to free up the roots before planting. Take care not to be to rough with the roots.
3) Place your new Pink Lady apple tree in the hole and be sure it’s straight as you begin to back fill the hole. Tamp down the soil as you fill the hole to prevent air pockets from forming.
4) Water the planting site to settle the soil and then mulch around the base to prevent competing weeds and grasses from growing around the area.
*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk as this can encourage rot and fungus from forming.

Planting Directions (potted tree): Most wouldn’t think you cannot grow an apple tree that isn’t a dwarf variety in a pot. With the Pink Lady apple you can definitely grow a happy, healthy apple tree in a pot! Growing this way will also help maintain the tree at a more manageable height.

1) You will want to start off with a fairly large pot for the apple tree to have enough space to stretch out its root system. A ten gallon or even a fifteen gallon pot will be a good size to start with. Plastic pots may not be a good selection as they can get hot in the sun and aren’t insulated against the cold.
2) Select a well draining, quality potting soil mix to fill the pot.
3) Some light trimming of the roots is encouraged before potting the tree to prevent it from becoming a root bound mess in the pot. Snip the roots so they are about ½ inch from the inside wall of the pot.
4) Be sure you add enough soil to the bottom of the pot so the graft union will be level with the rim of the pot. Fill the pot until there is about a 2 inch space from the rim to the top of the soil.

Watering (in ground): Your Pink Lady apple will benefit from a regular watering habit each week. You may need to water more often in times of extreme heat or drought. 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.

Watering (potted): Water slowly when you irrigate the tree to ensure even moisturizing of the soil. When the tree is in a dormant state, only provide enough water to keep the soil slightly moistened. As soon as you see newer growth coming out of the tree you can water whenever the top 2 inches of the soil feels dry.

Pruning (in ground): Once your tree has become established and is starting to bear fruit, it will need some periodic, moderate pruning. Only prune the tree during times of dormancy making sure to remove any vigorous, upright stems which are quite common in the upper portion of the tree. Weak, damaged or dead branches should also be removed. Low hanging, droopy branches should also be removed. As a branch declines with age it should be cutback to let younger branches take over and produce better.

Pruning (potted): Once you have your tree potted and comfortable, prune the branches back to about Planting & Care

how long does it take to get eatable apples from the 4 ft. tree?
john j on Mar 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It could take 1-3 years.
Will it with stand a Texas type heat?
Linda on Apr 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I live in the Dallas area, and I bought 6 fruit trees last year. They are all doing great! Two of them were apple trees. I can't remember which variety, but it doesn't matter as long as it says that these grow in your growing zone, then it will be fine. I was told by several people that Apple trees won't grow in my area, that is true of some varieties that's why it's important to make sure the trees are for your zone. One of my apple trees actually produced apples last year (the first year). I had to cut the apples off though because it looked like the weight of them was going to break the branches. I'm excited to see them produce this year!
How far apart do you plant for cross pollenation?

BEST ANSWER: I've been planting every 20' apart.
do i need to buy 2 pink lady trees for pollination?
Kathy P on Oct 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes you will need a pollinator, such as the Gala, Red Fuji, Yellow Delicious, Granny Smith, Jonathan, McIntosh, Red Delicious or another Pink Lady.
does it need another apple tree to cross pollinate?
deena v on Jun 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they do. Fast Growing trees has a chart on the website that shows the best cross pollinators. Also, I have read that Crab Apple trees cross pollinate most apple trees. Hope this helps.
What should soil PH be?
Ross V on Mar 19, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 6.0-7.0
I live in western Maryland. We are heading into fall. Is it best to wait until spring to plant apple trees?
Julie on Sep 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: You can wait, however, the best time to plant is now thru October. Doing this now will allow the root system to better develop for the upcoming spring and summer.
When do I fertilizer this tree?
Mary S on Jan 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I read that the best time is once a year in Spring with a nitrogen fertilizer when the flowers begin. I plan to use the fertilizer spikes for fruit trees that you hammer into the ground around the perimeter of the limb spread ( drip line). Good luck!
