Honeygold Apple Tree CareView Full Planting & Care Instructions
Sunlight Honeygold Apples thrive in full sun, so make sure you plant in a spot that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day.

Fertilizing Follow label instructions on an apple-specific fertilizer, usually applying several times from April until August.
The Sweetest Cold Hardy Apple Available
Why Honeygold Apple Trees?
The Honeygold Apple Tree is an all-around favorite, especially for its cold hardy strength. And though it's similar in taste to the Honeycrisp, the Honeygold Apple Tree is a dessert apple that grows perfectly in even the coldest climates.
It can even withstand a Minnesota winter. Not many sweet fruits will grow in the harsh, windy climate. But your Honeygold Apple Tree will stand tall and produce a bountiful harvest, even in the worst winters.
The big harvest and sweet taste will mesmerize you. The Honeygold is quite the producer, and you’ll be thrilled by the large harvest you get in late September through November. Plus, you get a sweet, honey taste without any tartness, which is what gives this apple its name. You’ll love biting into this healthy dessert right as the temperature drops in early autumn.

Honeygold Apple Tree Pollination
Honeygold Apple Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another variety to achieve fruiting. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Full sun and well-drained soil are ideal for your Honeygold - any area that receives around 6 hours of sunlight per day is perfect. Once you've found your location, dig a hole that's twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Then, place your Apple Tree, back fill the soil and tamp down to avoid air pockets. Finally, mulch the area and water to settle the roots for best results.
*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.
2. Watering: Depending on how much rain your area gets, you may need to water your Honeygold every 10 days. If you get less than an inch of rain every 10 days, water the soil around the root line. But if you're not sure when to water, simply check your soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizing: It's best to fertilize in late winter or early spring. We recommend buying commercial fertilizer produced for fruiting trees and following the instructions.
4. 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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Honeygold Apple Tree
Tree arrived in good shape, it has many leaves on it already, some branches have blossoms on them.
Healthy, growing apple
The tree was back ordered, and I was informed by email that the specimens weren't big enough to ship. I bided my time and was emailed about 2 weeks ago of the tree being shipped. They stated it may have been pruned prior to shipping, but it was a good healthy tree that was growing new leaves within a week of planting. I look forward to my apples next year. Thank you.
