Customer Reviews & Photos
The trees arived well packaged and in good healty. Waited to review until the trees were estabilshed. I'm happy to say that they are thriving. When they arrived they were approx. 4 ft high. One has already grown a foot and the other is well on its way to doing the same. I was a bit concerned that traveling cross country might be ******* them but they traveled from Georgia to Washington state in excellent condition. I would recommend Fast-Growing trees and will use them again if we we want more fruit trees.
Planting & Care
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 Braeburn 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 Braeburn Apple Tree will self pollinate, though you can plant it alongside other varieties of apple trees to increase the harvest. The best varieties to plant with are Fuji, Granny Smith, Honeycrisp and Macintosh.
Disease Prevention: 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 in the 2nd or 3rd year, but it is possible that it may bear fruit in its 1st year. Do not use color to determine if your apples are ready to harvest. Instead, look at the color of the ground, feel the firmness of the fruit, look for apples that have dropped and see it they are easy to pluck from the tree. Braeburn typically harvest Oct 10-25, but these dates vary slightly depending on your climate and tree.
