Large, Delicious Apples Early in the Season
Why Dorsett Apple Trees?
With our Dorsett Apple Tree, you get an early harvest of delicious apples, and up to two additional annual harvests in warmer areas, in the first year of growth. Because this Southern tree flourishes in both high temperatures and resists chill down to -10 degrees, you get amazing results.
Even better? It’s resistant to most diseases, so it’s hassle-free too. Of all the apple varieties, the Dorsett is the first to bloom as early as mid-January in areas with milder winter climates. That means you can expect an abundance of enormous apples as early as late June.
How does the Dorsett taste? One word says it all: Delicious. Take a Golden Delicious apple, add a hint of vanilla and just the right touch of sweetness and you have a Dorsett Apple. Although it ripens in early summer, the Dorsett doesn't have the sharp berry flavors typical of most summer varieties, so it has the taste and firmness of a fall apple.
Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
Aside from its delectable flavor, effortless care and fast growth, our Dorsett is amazing because we’ve grafted and grown it from proven, consistent root stock. And since we’ve nurtured our Dorsett Apple Tree from day one, you get more branching…which means more fruit.
Dorsett Apples of your own are just a click away. Grab your own Dorsett Apple Tree, before they’re gone!

Planting & Care
1. Planting: Ensure you select a planting location with well-drained soil and full sun (6 hours of sunlight per day). Once you've selected your location, 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 prevent air pockets. Finally, mulch the area to preserve moisture and water to settle the roots.
*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.
2. Watering: Your Dorsett 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 about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is 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 and weak, damaged or dead branches.
