Why Mutsu Apple Trees?
The crisp, juicy Mutsu (also known as Crispin) is one of the most popular varieties of apples. Why? Because they’re delicious right off the branch, and their sweet yet tart flavor adds an extraordinary flair to cooked dishes. And you get fruit after your tree’s very first year of growth.
Bakers love this apple for a reason. The Mutsu Apple has a unique texture ideal for preparing pies and coarsely-grained flesh that holds up well when baked, making the Mutsu a favorite amongst baking enthusiasts. And since it’s notably larger than other varieties, you can make a full pie with as few as three apples!

Customer Reviews & Photos
So far so good, tree arrived during a heat wave. 100+ temps in the mountains is not normal but after a week of watering everyday the little tree has started producing small leaves and now the rainy season is here I think its gonna make it. Hopefully fruit will show up next year well see.
I was so very pleased when my trees were shipped to me. They were much bigger than I thought they would be. Very well grown. Very easy to plant.
The Mutsu Tree arrived very healthy and pretty with a few apples already on it. I planted it the next day. It was thriving and looking great. However, I think deer like them too. Yesterday, a deer was eating all the lower leaves. I have leaves left on top. Maybe, it will survive if I can keep the deer away. I scared the deer off, but I fear it will be back to finish the meal. Any suggestions for protecting the tree from deer? I would order the tree again. I have ordered other trees from Fast Growing Trees and they are doing well.
All of the three trees were easy to plant and seem to have accepted thier ground locations.
Hello Pam The Mutsu Apple tree arrived with no damage or problems and it is growing very nicely. In fact it has already bloomed in several places. My ***’s Orange Pippin Apple tree arrived on Monday the 11th of May. It also was in good shape as was the Minerva Rose of Sharon shrub. The Arkansas Black Apple tree that arrived in early April is growing very nicely as well. I purchased 3 other apple trees and 2 peach trees from your nursery in the fall of 2019 and all of them are doing excellent. I was concerned about planting them so late in the growing season; if they would be able to be strong enough to survive the winter. But they have and both peach trees have bloomed and already have small peaches on them and two of the three apple trees have bloomed and have apples developing . That is why I placed any order with your company for three more trees. I am very, very satisfied with your product. I still have room on the several acres that we have for more fruit trees and because of the quality of your product I intend to plant more in the future. I was reluctant at first to order trees on line, but I am now glad that I did especially from your company. Thank You John Dingess
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Start by choosing a location with well-drained soil and full sun (around 6 hours of sunlight per day). Keep in mind that trees should be spaced away from buildings. When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that it is at least twice the diameter and the same depth of the tree’s root ball. Place the tree into the hole and gently spread its roots into the hole. Back fill the hole with the soil, tamp down and mulch to keep soil moist. Finally, water to settle.
2. Watering: The Mutsu Apple grows best when it has evenly moist soil. It can tolerate periods of drought when established, but its crop production may be reduced. Generally, you should water your tree about once weekly. If you're not sure when to water, however, simply check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If it's dry here, it's time to water.
3. Fertilizer: Apply a general purpose fertilizer, such as a 10-10-10 formula, to the Mutsu in the early spring before the foliage of the tree starts to emerge. Follow the directions on the fertilizer's label for ratios.
4. Pollination: The Mutsu Apple requires a pollinator to set an ample crop of apples. Plant a Gala, Fuji, or Granny Smith to help ensure pollination. A pollinator tree should be located somewhere within 25 feet of the Mutsu for adequate pollination.
5. Pruning: Your Apple Tree will need very little pruning during its first few years. Mature apple trees require annual pruning. Prune away any shoots that grow beneath the tree’s graft bud, and remove any dead or diseased limbs.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase. 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.
