    I've enjoyed watching this apple tree go from a bare stick to a luscious leafy tree in a short amount of time. The pic shows a progression from end of March to end of April. The reason for the low rating is I never got one flower, which means I have to wait another year or so to see if I will ever get blossoms. Very disappointed.

    Fast Growing Trees Plant ExpertThank you for the photos of your tree! We apologize that you didn't get blooms this year! Flowers typically happen before the tree leaves out so it may have bloomed prior to receiving it and the shipping process may have knocked them off. You should expect to see blooms early next Spring though!

    Extremely pleased!

    No sooner did we plant them they started to grow! There are even flower buds forming! We will be buying more trees soon!

    Great little tree

    The tree came perfect with many leaves. No apples yet but it has acclimated well to its new pot on our patio.

    Beautiful Tree!

    The tree arrived in perfect condition and very healthy. After repotting and adjusting for just a couple of weeks, I have fresh leaves and apple blossoms blooming already. I'm expecting another variety to deliver today so that the pollination can begin. I can't wait to eat these upcoming apples!

    Very Pleased

    The scarlet sentinel columnar apple tree that arrived surpassed my expectations. It had a nice thick trunk with several healthy, beautiful blooms. So excited to see how it produces!
