About the Tasty Red™ Urban™ Apple Tree

Grow your own apples anywhere! The Tasty Red™ Urban™ Apple tree is a compact, column-shaped fruit tree that can be planted in containers or planted in a row as an edible privacy hedge. Urban apple trees, or sometimes called columnar or spire trees grow full-size apples along the spurs of the central leader branch. They stay narrow, less than about 2 ft. wide and grow to about 8-10 ft. tall.

Gardeners everywhere adore these small trees for their low maintenance and the ability to set fruit at a young age – typically in the first couple of years! The Tasty Red Urban apples ripen in mid-September. The apples are bright red, medium in size, firm, with sweet, juicy flesh. Perfect for fresh eating, baking, and preserving.

The Tasty Red™ Urban™ Apple is easy to grow and care for due to its size. It’s cold-hardy and has some resistance to common apple tree diseases.

Pollinator required: Choose another apple variety. See Recommended Pollinators below.
