About the Golden Treat™ Fruit Snacks™ Columnar Apple

Grow crisp, balanced, beautiful apples in your own backyard with the Golden Treat™ Fruit Snacks™ Columnar Apple Tree. These compact, spire trees bear full-sized, golden-skinned apples with a delightful hint of tartness, perfect for various culinary applications. Easy to grow and maintain, these Fruit Snacks™ were bred to be rust-resistant and resilient against apple scab. Growing only to heights of 8’-10’ and pruned to a columnar shape, these trees make for edible hedge and grow well in containers. Perfect for small gardens and edible landscaping.

Golden Treat™ apples offer an exquisite blend of sweetness and tartness, coupled with a satisfying crunch, making them a chef’s go-to choice. These golden-skinned apples are not only perfect for fresh consumption but also shine in culinary creations, adding flavor and texture to cheese platters and enhancing the deliciousness of cobblers and pies. Their medium-pink blossoms in spring transition into full-sized fruits, offering both aesthetic beauty and culinary delight.

How to Grow a Golden Treat™ Fruit Snacks™ Columnar Apple Tree

Easy to grow and maintain due to their size, Golden Treat™ apples are part of the Fruit Snacks™ columnar apple variety. These trees, growing 8-10’ tall and ideally planted on 2’ centers, are a perfect fit for small spaces. With their cold hardiness and disease resistance, they stand as a reliable choice for edible privacy hedges or as striking accent plants in larger containers. To ensure optimal pollination, it’s essential to plant two different apple tree varieties. Most Fruit Snacks™ apples bloom mid-season and play a vital role in pollinating each other, fostering a fruitful harvest for all.
