Description

An old-time heirloom favorite. Flavor, flavor, flavor! Great big, gorgeous yellow apples look and taste like Golden Delicious, but are crisper and sweeter. Sometimes a blush of pale pink will appear on the exposed side. A fine apple, good for both fresh eating and baking. Abundant crops are blissfully resistant to scab and mildew. Ripens in September. Discovered near Oakville, WA, in 1937. Best of all, it’s one of the few self-pollinating apple trees.

It originates from the area where we are local so it should be able to bear the climate and soil relatively easily; wanted a dwarf to fit our yard size. Will look to experiment with the fruit once it bears.

I grow up in Washington State so I like to add a Washington apple tree in my back yard.
Maya S on Jan 15, 2020
Room for one tree quite far from my others. Self-pollinating is a plus. Also, don???t have a yellow apple and it???s a dwarf. Perfect all around.

Hi! I'd really love to buy one of your Crimson Crisp apple trees, will the Chehalis, Stark Golden Delicious or Stark Red Romance trees pollinate it?
Marissa B on Jan 28, 2021
BEST ANSWER: The Crimson crisp is a mid season bloomer so any mid season bloomer will pollinate this tree such as a Red delicious, Golden delicious, Pink lady and Mutsu along with many others. You can find the bloom time in the characteristics section of the variety.

Is Chehalis a good pollinator for Jonagold?
Wild Bill on Jan 10, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate you reaching out to us. The Chehalis is an early bloomer and the Jonagold blooms mid season. There is a chance that they would overlap bloom time but I would not rely fully on that.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us. Have a great day!
