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 huge harvest you get in late September through October. 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Nice tree, looks full of promise
It arrived last year, an almost 6-foot tall tree with a few decent branches on it, and has had ample time to adjust. It flowered due to the bizarre warming trend in late winter not long after I put in the ground. The frost came in not long after that and took all the foliage off as you'd expect. It's waking up again this year as early as late May, it should bud right on time with some of the other trees in the yard I'm hoping. Beautiful bright pink blooms, the bees will be super happy this year. It is hard to find trees from this grower that they can actually ship to my state due to restrictions, I was pleasantly surprised to find this one would ship. It seems to be a very hardy tree, having survived single digit temperatures and lots of snow, looking forward to seeing it produce this year provided the pollinators cooperate.
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.
5. Pollination: The Honeygold Apple Tree does not self pollinate, so you must plant it alongside other varieties of apple trees to increase the harvest. The best varieties to plant with are Fuji, Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Empire or Macintosh.
