Apples on Apples: Our Top 5 Back-to-School Fruit Trees

Apples on Apples: Our Top 5 Back-to-School Fruit Trees

Back-to-school season: a time to celebrate the fruits and pursuit of knowledge…and maybe a few fresh fruits of your own at home. To celebrate the start of the new school year, is discounting all apple trees and highlighting some of our most popular apples, for teachers and homeowners alike.

Is there anything better than a ripe, robust apple, full of the sweet and juicy taste you love? Plus, by the time the next school year comes around, you’ll have a bountiful harvest for an apple a day. They’re perfect for teachers’ gift baskets—or keeping for yourself! Here are a few of our favorite apple tree cultivars:

1. Fuji Apple Tree

A bonafide classic, the Fuji Apple Tree produces one of the most popular apple varieties on the market. And it’s no wonder why. Fujis can be grown organically, without pesticides, right in your backyard. Best of all, this tree fruits the first year, so bushels and bounties of fresh apples await.


2. Granny Smith Apple Tree

First they’re sour, then they’re succulently, wonderfully sweet. The Granny Smith Apple you know and love is even more delicious when it’s home-grown. And this Granny Smith cultivar produces fresh fruit in record time—in the first full year of growth.

3. Gala Apple Tree

Another fresh favorite, the Gala Apple Tree is a supermarket go-to. But since you’ll get your Galas in the very first year (and an average of 6 to 12 bushels at that), you won’t need to visit the supermarket. Crisp, clean taste, right at home—imagine that!

Delicious Apples

4. Red Delicious Apple Tree

Ok, so who doesn’t love a Red Delicious Apple? Thanks to this tree, you’ll now have your go-to fruit at home. Plus, bright reds and rich greens make this tree a fanciful focal point in your yard. The Red Delicious Apple Tree is truly a must-have because it’s equally elegant and economical.

5. Honeycrisp™ Apple Tree

Last but not least, the one-of-a-kind, well-curated Honeycrisp. The fruit from this tree tastes so sweet, it’s like having dessert. Healthful yet totally delectable? Yes, please! And, like many of our other cultivars, the Honeycrisp Apple Tree fruits its first year.
