Why North Pole Apple Trees?
With an elegant columnar shape and a compact size, the North Pole Columnar Apple Tree gives you sweet, flavorful fruit and visual interest for any outdoor space.
The North Pole Columnar Apple is a narrow, vertical apple tree covered in deep-green foliage. With little branching, it continues growing upright, for a unique and eye-catching shape.
Spring brings fragrant white flowers, followed in late summer and fall by impressive clusters of glossy red fruit. These apples are sweet, crisp and fragrant - perfect for cider, applesauce, pies and snacking fresh off the tree.
Growing up to 10-12 feet tall and just 1-2 feet wide, the North Pole Columnar Apple tree makes a statement in any landscape - however, it performs just as well in containers on patios or balconies.
This tree can produce fruit in the first year, but will need an additional pollinator - pair with any other variety of apple tree for abundant fruit production.

North Pole Columnar Apple Tree Pollination
North Pole Columnar 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: Select an area with full sun (6 to 8 hours) and well-drained soil.
Then, select a pot that's about twice the width of your plant's shipped container. Select a well-draining, quality potting soil mix to fill the pot. Add soil to the bottom of the pot, place your tree, and fill the pot until there is about a 2-inch space from the rim to the top of the soil.
2. Watering: Water slowly when you irrigate the tree to ensure even moisturizing of the soil. When the tree is in a dormant state, only provide enough water to keep the soil slightly moistened. As soon as you see newer growth coming out of the tree, you can water whenever the top 2 inches of the soil feels dry.
3. Pruning: Once you have your tree potted and comfortable, prune the branches back at a 45-degree angle with a pair of clean shears.
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.

Excellent. Cant wait to see grow
Overall great purchase/value
I've purchased a variety of fruit trees online at different sites. Five have come from FGT. I recently ordered 2 columnar apple trees to put in may patio area; they came very well packaged, intact, and healthy. Even bigger than I was expecting! The only not great part was because of the way they were packaged together and the box was laid on it's side, one of the trees was squished under the weight of the other, so it lost some leaves in transit. It is otherwise healthy, though, and already budding new leaves in its new home! :)
It took about 5 years, but this year I probably have over 100 apples on the tree. I bought 2 of them (different kind) the second 1 died 3rd year. No other apple trees around, so my guess is the crab apple trees are pollinating it. This tree is awesome. Hit almost 12 feet high. It also grew 3 other branches, not as tall as the lead but they trying.
