About the Blushing Delight™ Apple Tree

Light, sweet, crisp and juicy! Enjoy homegrown fruit with Blushing Delight™ Apple Tree, perfect for small gardens and edible landscaping. This compact Fruit Snacks™ columnar apple variety offers rapid growth and abundant yields within a few years post-planting.

Resilient to cold climates and boasting robust disease resistance, Blushing Delight™ serves as an ideal edible privacy hedge or eye-catching accent in larger containers. Planting two different apple tree varieties ensures optimal pollination, with most Fruit Snacks™ apples blooming mid-season, mutually aiding in this process.

Beyond their delectable taste, Blushing Delight™ contributes to landscape beauty, attracting bees with its stunning spring flowers. These flowers transform into delectable fruits in fall, offering both aesthetic and culinary pleasures. Their versatility in small spaces makes them excellent for hedges or container planting, catering to urban edible landscapers for easy harvest and visual appeal.

Welcome spring with delicate white blossoms, leading to the arrival of blushing red apples in autumn. These apples tantalize the taste buds with their delightful blend of sweetness, lightness, and flavor, perfect for snacking, baking, and more.

Growing the Blushing Delight™ Fruit Snacks™ Apple Tree

The Fruit Snacks™ line, including Blushing Delight™, is the result of meticulous breeding by top European apple breeders. This breeding effort ensures robust rust resistance and virus-free trees, eliminating the need for harsh chemicals in cultivation. Enjoy the fruit’s bountiful harvest without the worry of disease susceptibility, thanks to its inherent disease resilience.

Designed for ease, these trees require minimal care due to their upright, dwarf, and slender nature. Ensure successful pollination by planting two different apple tree varieties. Their adaptability to small spaces makes them perfect for pots or as charming hedges. Cultivating Blushing Delight™ promises not only a visual delight but also a bounty of delicious, chemical-free fruits for all to relish.
