Urban Apples® grow straight up, creating an elegant tree for small landscapes and patios. Blushing Delight™ Apples blush red to yellow and fruit in the first year. Mature size is 8 to 10 feet tall by 2 feet wide. A choice of two varieties is required for cross pollination.
For new plantings, dig a hole one and a half times wider than the plant’s container; place plant in hole, keeping the top of the root ball ground level; and back fill with dirt. Water thoroughly and then mulch around the base to conserve moisture and reduce weeds. New plantings require more frequent watering than established plants. Wind, temperature and soil are factors to consider in watering. Feed plants in early spring and again in early fall with an all-purpose fertilizer, following label instructions.
These Blushing Delight Urban Apples are perfect for growing on the patio in full sun. Keep planters fully water during the growing season. Choose a container big enough to allow the root system to “stretch out”.
Blushing Delight Urban Apple has sweet flavor and a pretty red blush over a green background. It ripens mid-September.
Urban Apples® are NEW columnar trees that produce their fruit on spurs along the main stem. Each combines disease resistance, flavor and ease of growing in small spaces. Each has a narrow upright habit, ideally suited to grow in a container on a patio or as a small tree in the ground. Trees grow about 8′ tall. Like other apples you need two cultivars for pollination and each blooms mid season and is a good pollinizer for the others.
They are each highly disease resistant selections from Dr. Jaroslav Tupy of the Czech Republic. USDA Zones 4-9. Chill hours 800 to 1200.
