About the Red Jonathan Apple Tree

Like the original Jonathan but the fruit of the Red Jonathan has earlier and brighter red coloring. This antique variety is a late-ripening staple for any orchard, now with improved color and disease resistance.

The Red Jonathan apple tree bears young, annually, and heavily. Expect a nice crop of beautifully red, medium-sized apples in late September. These Jonathan apples have an excellent sweet and slightly tart flavor. The fruit has juicy white flesh. Perfect for baking, making sauce, preserving, and eating fresh. These apples store well throughout the winter.

This compact tree was bred for scab resistance. Plant with another apple variety that blooms around the same time for best results. Enjoy reliable crops of bright red apples with the Red Jonathan Apple tree!
