This variety appears to be a hardy, and disease resistant alternative to the temperamental Cox Orange Pippen.

Can you still plant apple trees in November? I live in Cheboygan Mi.
Patti on Oct 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your question. Because weather and soil conditions vary so much from year to year and even within your zone, it's best to think of your planting time as a range of favorable conditions instead of an exact time.

You can plant new plants and trees: 1) when the ground is not frozen, 2) when daytime temperatures are above freezing (32??F) and below 90??F, and 3) when extreme weather (blizzard, hail, torrential rain, etc.) is not in the forecast. Be sure to keep plants watered if you're transplanting in warm and/or dry weather.
which variety makes the best applesauce?
wezie on Oct 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Louise, This is a really good question. You can make applesauce from any kind of apple. The softer the apple, the faster they will cook.

Cortland, Fuji, Golden and Red Delicious including the Williams Pride are excellent choices.

If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us, remember that we're here for you. Have a great day!

Is Williams Pride a spur-bearing tree?
Nancy J on Oct 4, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Nancy, This is a great question. The Williams Pride is considered to be a semi-spur type because the fruits are borne on short spurs evenly distributed and the tree has little blind wood. If you have any further questions please don't hesitate to reach back out to us, remember that we're here for you. Have a great day!
