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 anna apples are sweet, slightly tart, and crisp with creamy light flesh. Fresh eating and delicious taste!
This ann apple 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.

It is an early season apple that ripens in June to produce delicious apples.
Anna Apple Tree Care
The growth rate of this apple tree is moderate. Grows less than 8 inches per year. Prefers full sun and slightly shaded during the hot afternoon temperatures. Prefers slightly acidic soil. This apple variety is the perfect apple tree for the south! Will thrive in some other areas of the United States.
After Anna apple tree planting, the trees will produce at an early age and are self-fertile. But anna apple pollination with an apple variety such as Dorsett Golden apple will increase production, meaning more fruit for you! For more information on this check out our blog on cross pollination in fruit trees.
This apple tree grows best across the United States in USDA growing zones 6-9. The chill requirement makes it an ideal choice for people in warmer southern climates with mild winters.
It does not ship bare root. This tree is grown rooted in a pot with soil and will come shipped that way. Check out our blog on Apple Tree Diseases if you are experiencing issues.
