Double Delicious 2-in-1 Apple Tree

Description
Enjoy apple season longer with the Double Delicious 2-IN-1 Apple Tree. This grafted tree produces Liberty and Sundance™ apples. Ripening first in early October is Liberty. The medium-to-large fruits are mildly tart and shiny, with a red blush. Liberty apples are excellent for fresh eating, juice and sauce. Maturing in mid to late October is Sundance. The large fruit has porcelain to yellowish-green skin, often with a red blush and creamy white flesh. The fruit's popping-crisp texture is ideal for fresh eating and pies. Liberty and Sundance pollinate each other and are disease resistant. Trees grow 10-15 ft. tall. Plant in full sun. Zones 5-8.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.

Initially, on young trees, to encourage a strong, solid framework. 2. On mature trees to maintain shape, maximize sun exposure and encourage fruit production. You will also want to remove any suckers coming from the rootstock. Unwanted shoots and suckers can be removed at any time. Also remove any crossed, crowded or inward-growing limbs in late winter or very early sprin
  • PollinatorSelf pollinating. Liberty and Sundance.
  • CommentsSpecial considerations: Apple trees are grafted. Mix generous amount of organic material 15 - 18 inches into soil before planting. Seeds are a good indicator of ripeness, white if fruit is immature & brown when fruit is ripe. Fruit should part from the stem easily as well. If storing over-Winter, select unbruised & blemish free fruit. Water trees deeply in hot, dry, windy weather. After 1st yr. Fertilize with 12-12-12; 1lb. per tree. Feed in early Spring before new growth starts. It is very important to not over-fertilize. Avoid high nitrogen fertilizers.
  • YieldStandard: Approximately 6 to 8 bushels at maturity.
  • Botanical NameMalus domestica 'Double Delicious' 2-IN-1
  • DepthLocate the planting depth indicator, the marked line above the tree's root system. The graft should be about 2 inches above the soil surface.
