For starters, the tree grows arrow straight and has virtually no branches! That makes it the perfect choice for confined or tight areas.

Basically, the Red Columnar offers the best of both worlds. You get sweet, healthy fruit for baking, snacking and more, all without the hassle.

Very nice tree
Arrived in a short time. Packaged well, in good condition. I planted it in a cloth container in my small greenhouse. It is doing very well. Thanks!
Great Columnar Apple Trees
The columnar apple trees that I purchased from Fast Growing Trees are doing great. They are very healthy, and half of them have one or two apples on them.
Their trees are weak and bad
Bought 2 apple trees in April 2017, watered them, even gave fertilizer. After 2 years no growth. Had a few blossoms - but no fruit reached maturity, they trees are not mature as they claim - ripoff
We're sorry to hear that your apple trees haven't done well! Please send us some photos of the trees and we'll be happy to take a look and see what may be going on!
red columnar apple tree
Arrived larger than expected in perfect condition potted and dormant in late November with 5 branches with a few leaves waiting to fall. It will stay in my garage until spring lightly watered every few weeks at which time I hope to have a green or yellow columnar for cross pollination.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Full sun and well-drained soil are ideal for ensuring your Red Columnar thrives. So, select any area that receives approximately 6 hours of sunlight per day. Once you've selected a location, dig a hole that's twice the width of the root ball and just as deep. Place your new tree, back fill the hole and then mulch to preserve moisture. Finally, water to settle the roots.
*Tip: Make sure your mulch is not touching the base of the trunk.
2. Watering: Your Red Columnar Apple will benefit from a regular watering each week. You may need to water more often in times of extreme heat or drought. However, if you're not sure when to water, simply check the surrounding soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is 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 and weak, damaged or dead branches.
