Semi-Dwarf Apple Trees

Semi-Dwarf Apple Trees Buyer's Guide

Semi-dwarf apple trees are favored for their abundant fruit crops (almost twice as many apples as a dwarf tree) without taking up much space. These trees will grow to be 12-15 feet tall and wide, so we recommend spacing them 12-15 feet apart. Once semi-dwarf apple trees have reached their fruit-bearing maturity, a 6-foot tall person can harvest a majority of the apples from the ground, without needing a ladder. Semi-dwarf apple trees tend to be well-anchored once planted, but using tree stakes is recommended in high-wind areas. With proper care and pruning, a semi-dwarf apple tree can be the perfect fit for a modest yard or garden, and they are even suitable options for being grown in containers.
