Crunch-A-Bunch™ Apple Tree

Description
Exclusively from Gurney's, we're proud to offer a new and improved version of the beloved Goldrush Apple! Retaining Goldrush's bright, intense flavor and long storage time, Crunch-A-Bunch™ proudly announces its improved texture with a loud and delicious CRUNCH! This strikingly flawless, golden skinned beauty ripens to perfection in mid-September and often blushes bright pink. Its sweet-tart flavor hints a tropical twist of pineapple and is perfect for snacking, baking and cider—a winner in multiple blind taste tests! Resistant to Scab and Fire Blight, Crunch-A-Bunch™ is the amazing result of the dedication and hard work of many apple growers, breeders and enthusiasts. Zones 5-8. PP29126

Now available in Reachables size! A Reachables tree produces full-sized fruits, but on a smaller tree. That makes it easier to fit into your garden, orchard—or even a container. It's also easier to manage than full-sized trees. One person can prune, spray, net and harvest the tree—all while standing on the ground. Note: Because their full-sized fruits grow on smaller trees, Reachables require a tree support.

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.

  • PruningPrune in late winter/early spring, while trees are still dormant. There are normally two goals when pruning an apple tree: 1. 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

  • CommentsIf you are a fan of Goldrush's intense flavor and long storage ability, but don't care for its appearance, dense texture and extremely late ripening window, you are going to love Crunch-A-Bunch! Striking, clear-golden skin, often blushed with bright pink, these beauties ripen to perfection in mid-September-over a month before Goldrush. Crisp and juicy with a bright, balanced sweet-tart flavor that hints at pineapple, it's sure to become your favorite apple for snacking, but also excels for cider and baking. You can enjoy fresh apples in the middle of winter (and beyond) as Crunch-A-Bunch stores in common refrigeration for up to 8 months.
