Tangy apples are my favorite to eat. I also like to put them in pies. We don't have space in our small yard for a garden and a fruit orchard. But, this skinny tree looks like it could fit just about anywhere the sun shines!

When do they bloom?
ivy s on Jun 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Specific dates will vary with the weather.

The flowers on mine overlapped with my Fuji and my Yellow Transparent and I got fifteen apples starting out on this its second year before thinning and before the raccoons got to them. This tree puts it all into fruiting, definitely not into growth. The flowers last a goodly while, which helps when you're trying to cross-pollinate. They're particularly pretty.
Planted Tangy Apple in Fall 2014. Did flower and fruit in 2015. No flowers yet in 2016 but has leaves and looks healthy. Why no Flowers? in Chicago.
Mkm52 on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It is resting this year. Most likely it was too young to be fruiting last year, so this year it will rest and just put on growth. If a tree ever puts on too much fruit one year it will rest the next. Some varieties are always biennial producers. Thinning out the baby apples to a reasonable number for the size of a tree can help it produce fruit every year.
Do the columnar trees require a pollinator, and can they be used as pollinators for other apple trees like honeycrisp ?
james e on Jun 4, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the columnar trees that are not designated as "self-pollinating" will require a pollinator, and yes they can pollinate (and be pollinated by) other apple trees.
Is this apple similar in taste and texture to a granny smith?
Kristin B on May 19, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. Apple, if fully ripe has a golden skin. Taste, to me, more like a golden delicious with a hint of ginger. The skin is very thin on this apple which makes shelf life limited.
