Tangy Green Columnar Apple Tree Pollination
Tangy Green Columnar Apple Trees are not self-fertile. You will need to plant another variety to achieve fruiting.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Full sun and well-drained soil are ideal for ensuring your Tangy Green Apple thrives. Select an 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, backfill 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 tree will benefit from 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.

Customer Reviews & Photos
I do love my trees
At first I was upset because the trees came with no warning and looked pretty rough. I contacted support and didn’t see the response. However I did get a response at a later date. My trees did recover and I am thrilled with their hardiness and how large they are. This was the only company that allowed me to select the size and actually had trees in stock. I’m so happy with that option. Thank you!
