Cold-Hardy Apple Trees

Cold-hardy apple trees are suitable for growing in low-temperature environments. These varieties were found to be productive in regions where winters can be far from mild. For example, the Orleans Antique apple was developed in New York and the Honeycrisp™ apple was developed in Minnesota. All of these cold-hardy apple trees are great choices if you live in zone 4, and some are hardy enough to thrive in zone 3.
