Product Description

The Baker's Favorite Apple

Why Arkansas Black Apple Trees?

Its unique, dark red-purple apples are filled with delicious tart and sweet flavors that are irresistible. Once you bite into a crisp Arkansas Black Apple you’ll know why it’s the baker’s favorite apple: Their sharp flavor has a sweet aftertaste with nodes of sugar and cinnamon.

And you’ll get a good number of apples each season – juicy, robust apples that emerge after only one year and can be stored for months. Best of all, your Black Arkansas Apples will be ready for harvest around October, just in time for cider season. Plus, planting, growing and harvesting your Arkansas Black Apples is easy - though you will need two different Apple varieties planted nearby (or one self-fertile variety like the Gala or Granny Smith), the entire process couldn't be simpler.

Why is Better

But the top benefit is our Arkansas Black Apple’s strong start. Because we’ve grafted, grown and trained our Arkansas for more branching and better results, you get consistency in size, color and taste, year after year. We’ve done the extra work (and nurtured your tree for months) so that you get guaranteed performance.

Don’t hesitate to order your own, one-of-a-kind Arkansas Black Apple Trees – these popular varieties sell out quickly. Get your Arkansas Black today!

Black Arkansas apple trees

I was extremely satisfied with the buying process. The trees came in sturdy boxes and were very healthy. Several of the trees I received have apples already growing, these were 4'-5' trees.

Great Start

We’ve purchased and planted our Arkansas Black Apple Tree. It’s been in the ground maybe 2 weeks now and we used to root rocket packs when we planted it. We have lots of crabapples for it to pollinate with. It is maintaining its color, leaves, and strength. It looks like it might even bare a few apples this year, the first season on our property!? (5-6 ft tree) I pray it continues to do well, it’s doing great so far.

Flourishing in Colorado

The tree arrived in great shape and is already putting out leaves. I couldn't be more pleased with the Arkansas Black from Fast Growing Trees. I purchased another Arkansas Black from a different company and it has not done as well as the tree from Fast Growing Trees.

Trees arrived FAST! Very fast! What’s more they were in pristine condition.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: For best results, choose a location with well-draining soil and full sun (6 hours of sunlight per day). When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Then, place your tree, back fill the soil and tamp down to eliminate air pockets. Finally, mulch to preserve moisture and water to settle the roots.

Keep in mind that the Arkansas Black will need two different Apple varieties nearby to pollination, or one different self-fertile Apple Tree (like the Gala or Granny Smith) planted nearby.

2. Watering: Your Arkansas Black Apple will benefit from a regular watering each week. You may need to water more often in times of extreme heat or drought. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil down to about 2 or 3 inches. If it's dry here, it's time to water.

3. Pruning: 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, as well as weak, damaged or dead branches.
