Sundance Apple Tree

Description
Crisp Texture & Great Flavor
Large fruit has porcelain to yellowish-green skin, often with a red blush and creamy white flesh. Delightful popping-crisp texture is ideal for fresh eating and pies— it holds the texture and bakes up perfectly— not too hard and never gets mushy. Exceptional sweet-tart flavor; sugary with refreshing hints of pineapple and lemon. Matures mid to late October, but hangs on the tree up to a month without loss of quality. Stores for up to 4 months in refrigerator— so you can enjoy them into winter! Excellent resistance to scab and cedar apple rust. Zones 5-8. U.S. Patent No. 13819.

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