Anna Apple Tree

Product Description

Looking for a self pollinating, low chill apple tree that will withstand a hot and humid climate?  If so, the Anna apple is the choice for you!

The Anna Apple Tree is an Israeli selection, and its fruits are lusciously large and have light greenish-yellow skin with a slight red blush. The fruit is sweet, slightly tart and crisp with a creamy light flesh.

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 Apple Trees thrive in areas not previously known for growing apples as it needs only 200-300 chill hours to produce delicious apples that ripen in late June. Anna trees produce at an early age and are self-fertile but a pollinizer such as Dorsett Golden will increase production, meaning more fruit for you!

Shipping Info

Once your Anna Apple Tree order is placed, we will ship your plant(s) within seven business days year round unless during the checkout process you request otherwise in the space provided to do so.

Perfect Plants’ shipping specialists carefully package your plants using a proven packaging method that ensures your plants arrive healthy, colorfully alive and ready to flourish. We’ve coined the term ‘upside down box test’ and we do just that; we carefully package so that regardless of the direction your box is handled, it will not harm your precious plant that’s inside.

No shipping process is without a problem from time to time. On rare occasions some plants may experience some of the following during their transit: drooping, minor leaf-loss and/or minimal yellowing/discoloration, minor limb damage, etc. These instances are quite rare, but can happen when shipping plants in boxes.

Plants normally recover within a few weeks after planting. If a damaged box has injured your plant on the inside, please notify us within 5 days of receiving you package(s) by emailing us a photograph of the damage.

We always do our very best to ensure that your plants are packed and shipped in the safest, gentlest and most effective way possible.

Will my plants and trees look like the photographs?

Absolutely! Unlike other online nurseries, our photos are of actual plants and trees we’ve grown here, on our family operated nursery.

our story Lloyd nurseryGrowing our own plants and trees helps to ensure we ship you the best quality plants that are free of pests and diseases.

Your plants and trees may however not ship with flowers on them, like the photographs. This all depends on the time of year you buy your plant or tree. Crape Myrtle trees, for example, only bloom during the summer months, so if you purchase one during the spring or fall, they would ship without flowers. Once planted, your plants will grow and thrive giving you flowers for many years to come!

Pot Sizes

Pot sizes (commonly referred to in gallons) are shipped in the same size nursery trade pots which may vary in actual volume. Some plants may have been at the approximate pot size listed, but require excess dirt to be removed so that you will not be paying any additional shipping costs. This doesn’t happen very often though.

Shipping Fees

Our shipping charges are based on the value of your order.  Please use the chart below to see what your shipping charge will be.

Care

ANNA APPLE TREE CARE:

The Anna Apple variety is particularly suited to Southern gardens! It will grow best in an area with full sun. Early morning sun is especially important as dew can have a negative impact on the tree if allowed to linger. Locations with good airflow are best.

The Anna Apple requires well-drained soils, as their roots should never remain soggy. Overly sandy or dry locations may require more frequent water however. Regular watering is necessary for the tree’s first planted year. A pH of 6- 6.5 is most ideal for fruit production.

The Anna Apple is self-fertile so it needs no pollinator to produce its delicious fruit. Planting another low-chill Apple variety, such as a Fuji or Dorsett close by will cause multiplied fruit production if desired however.

Prune selectively in the late winter to facilitate growth of a balanced, strong framework, maintain shape and to remove tightly packed limbs that may hinder airflow through the tree’s canopy.

PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS:

Dig a hole approximately twice as wide as your new plant’s root ball and deep enough so that the top of the root ball is equal with the ground level.

Loosen the root ball using a small garden spade or by hand. Breaking smaller outer roots can encourage growth into the new soil, but take care to not damage large primary roots.

Place the plant in the hole and ensure that it is situated evenly upright. Use the excavated soil to fill in around the root ball, using your foot to pack it in firmly. Thoroughly soak with a hose as you fill in the dirt. Take great care to not leave any gaps or air spaces around the root ball as this could kill the plant.

A 2-4 inch layer of mulch is strongly recommended to help retain moisture and discourage weed growth. Apply mulch over the entire planting area but keep away from the stems or trunk by a few inches. Ensure that the plant and surrounding soil is completely soaked with water.

To ensure the proper nutrients are available for the life of your Anna Apple Tree, our proprietary Perfect Plants Special Blend Soil and a once yearly application of Nutricote Total 360 Fertilizer are great considerations for your new plants!
