Worth its Weight in Golden Apples
Picture stacks of Golden apples surrounded by lush, deep green leaves growing vertically even in the tightest of spaces. That's the Golden Columnar Apple and it's divine. With no branches to inhibit its upward growth, this vine-like tree is highly ornamental, almost resembling something you'd put up for the holidays. A natural dwarf, the tree will not exceed 12 feet, but the apples themselves are quite sizable and will fill your tree in great numbers . Add gorgeous white flowers to the color mix of striking green foliage and bright yellow apples and you've got a winning combination that's like a living decoration.
The Big Apple with Tremendous Flavor
After you take in the beauty and fullness of all the Golden Columnar Apples clinging to your tree, pluck one off and take a crunchy bite. Be sure to have a napkin on hand to catch the sweet juice that drips as you sink your teeth into the white flesh. This incredible fruit is firm, sweet and delicious. Their refreshing flavor is great right off the tree and wonderful when baked. Use your Golden Apples to make homemade cider just like they did in the old days.
With the great taste and good looks of the Golden Columnar Apple tree, make sure to order yours today.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Came with an apple
This beautiful tree came with a baby apple! ok ok... maybe it is the size of a grape but its still an apple!! I just saw the first flowe bloom and excited to see what happens next.
Not quite as mature as hoped but so far so good
I just completed the transaction ordering a second of these Golden columnar trees. I have three North Pole columnar trees I bought locally and I bought my first Golden from Fast-Growing Trees as a cross pollinator. The Golden isn't quite as mature as the North Poles I bought but it arrived healthy and survived well for a week before I could have it planted in the ground. I just bought the second Golden because well symmetry you know? These trees will provide a nice privacy barrier for my little yard provide fruit (eventually) and give me something nice to look at during the spring summer and fall seasons in a space that accommodates little. Overall I'm pleased with the Golden from Fast-Growing Trees and I would recommend.
