Looking for a self pollinating, low chill apple tree that will withstand a hot and humid climate? If so, the Anna Apple Tree is the choice for you!
The Anna Apple is an Israeli selection and its fruits are lusciously medium to large sized apples. This tree’s apples have light green and yellow skin with a slight red blush. The apples are sweet, slightly tart and crisp with a creamy light flesh. Fresh eating.
The growth rate of this apple tree is moderate. Grows less than 8 inches per year. Does not ship bare root. This tree is grown rooted in a pot with soil and will come shipped that way. Prefers full sun and slightly shaded during the hot afternoon temperatures. Prefers slightly acidic soil. The is the perfect apple tree for the south! Will thrive in some other areas of the United States.
This variety is particularly noted for heavy crops. The tree will produce at an early age, and its fruit is great for eating fresh and baking and will store up to 2 months in the refrigerator. Anna Apples thrive in areas not previously known for growing apples as it needs only 200-300 chill requirement hours to break dormancy and produce delicious apples that ripen in late June.
Anna Apple trees produce at an early age and are self-fertile but an apple variety pollinizer such as Dorsett Golden apple tree will increase production, meaning more fruit for you! For more information on this check out our blog on cross pollination in fruit trees.
