How to Prune Heirloom Apple Trees and More

Heirloom Apple Trees will produce the same delicious fruit, season after season because they've performed reliably for years. And the entire planting process couldn't be easier.

When it comes to Heirloom Apple Trees, we follow the five Ps: Planting, Pruning, Pollination, and Picking.

  • Planting: Choose a sunny area to plant, place your tree in a hole big enough to accommodate its entire root system, pack the soil tightly and water to settle the area.
  • Pruning: Prune your Heirloom Apple Trees during winter, around the third year of its growth, by removing any suckers or sprouts from the rootstock and downward-growing or broken branches.
  • Pollination: Many of our Heirloom Apple Trees are self-fertile, but purchasing two or more Apple Trees ensures a larger harvest, longer growing season and more apple variety. For cross-pollination, check our pollination partners on each page.
  • Picking: Pull upwards on the apple and give it a twist – it will come off your tree easily when it's ready.
