Disease-Resistant Apple Trees

Disease-Resistant Apple Trees Buyer's Guide

When growing your own apples, a variety’s disease-resistance is your first line of defense. Disease-resistant apple trees are developed the natural way: apple breeders cross apple varieties that have low susceptibility to certain diseases – from fungal issues, like cedar apple rust and apple scab, to bacterial issues like fire blight. The result is an apple tree that has inherited its parents' resistances, which means fewer disease issues as it grows with you. Disease-resistant apple trees are quickly gaining in popularity for holistic and organic growers! Browse our offering of easy-care apples and grow your own high-quality fruit from these low-maintenance trees.
