Dwarf Apple Trees

Dwarf Apple Trees Buyer's Guide

Dwarf apple trees are small-size trees that yield full-size apples. These trees will mature around 8-10 feet tall and wide on average, and even vigorous varieties can be kept at a preferred height with regular pruning. Depending on the variety and the environment, dwarf apple trees tend to fruit sooner than semi-dwarf or standard apple trees. Space new dwarf apple trees 8-10 feet apart to allow room to grow. We recommend staking dwarf apple trees for the first few years to encourage sturdy, upright growth – especially in windy locations – and this is a quick and easy task made possible with tree stakes. Dwarf apple trees are ideal for planting in small spaces or containers, and care and harvest can be done from the safety of the ground – no ladders needed!
