About the Tasty Red™ Fruit Snacks™ Columnar Apple Tree

Meet the Tasty Red™ Fruit Snacks™ Columnar Apple – your answer to growing delicious, homegrown fruit, even in the smallest of spaces. These slender apple trees, part of the innovative Fruit Snacks™ line, are a game-changer for any gardener.

Tasty Red™ trees require minimal pruning and grow in a slim, upright, and dwarf-like fashion. Despite their compact size, they yield a plentiful harvest of sweet, juicy apples that stand out in the Fruit Snacks™ program. With a delightful slightly tart flavor, these clean, crunchy apples are perfect for backyard snacking and baking.

As spring unfolds, envision charming pink flowers gracing these trees, followed by vibrant red apples with a sweet, juicy taste. Their harvest season typically arrives in September, contributing to your fall garden and making apple pie season all the more appealing. Due to their sub-acidic nature, these apples can be picked over a month and store well for future use.

Growing Your Tasty Red™ Fruit Snacks™ Columnar Apple Tree

Ideal for smaller spaces, Tasty Red™ trees grow to a height of 8-10 feet and should be planted 2 feet apart for optimal growth. Their cold-hardiness and resistance to diseases like rust and apple scab make them low-maintenance and reliable for any garden.

These columnar apples bloom in mid-season, aiding pollination for other varieties. To ensure a fruitful harvest, plant two different varieties nearby. Tasty Red™ thrives in full sun with moist, well-drained garden soil. Their versatility makes them suitable for containers, as a standout specimen, or in a backyard orchard setting.

Grow your Tasty Red™ Fruit Snacks™ Columnar Apple for easy, homegrown fruit that’s perfect for small spaces. Whether you’re a seasoned gardener or just starting, these trees promise a rewarding harvest with minimal effort.
