Planting & Care
1. Planting: Full sun and well-drained soil help your tree thrive, so select an area with both (6 hours of sunlight per day). Now that you have found your ideal planting location for the tree, there are some basic steps for planting the tree. Place your tree, tamp down the soil as you fill the hole to prevent air pockets, and water to settle. Finally, mulch to preserve moisture.
*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.
2. Watering: Your tree will benefit from regular watering each week. You may need to water more often in times of extreme heat or drought. The soil surrounding your tree should be moist but never saturated. If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down - 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. Weak, damaged, or dead branches should also be removed.

Handled its planting like a champ!
I needed a fruit tree that would be able to withstand seasonal flooding. This eliminated most fruit trees. The paw paw and the apple were my only real choices. This tree was planted in memory of my husband at the one year anniversary of his passing. The tree was planted in a spot that he wanted to watch the deer come eat from it in front of the river. I am so looking forward to having our first deer eat an apple from that tree!
Very nice tree delivered in excellent condition
Too soon to know much, but it arrived in great shape, and packaged well. Only time will tell, but I am hopeful, it is blooming a ton.
