Heat-Tolerant Apple Trees

Heat-tolerant apple trees are suitable for growing in warmer climates with moderate winters and extreme summers. For example, the Cinnamon Spice apple was discovered in California and the Granny Smith apple originated from Australia. All of these heat-tolerant apple trees are perfect for low-chill orchards even as far south as zone 9, and some are even suitable for zone 10.
