How to Order APPLE TREES from Apple Luscious Organic Orchards
Apple Trees Available Now – Spring 2020
Tree size is determined by a few factors. One is the rootstock used and the other is the actual variety that has been grafted to it.
a) Most of my trees are on a vigorous rootstock (Bud 118), which produces a large tree about 16 feet tall and 16 feet spacing between trees. Bud 118 give a DROUGHT RESISTANT tree that does not need as much summer water.
b) INTERSTEM DWARF, which is a dwarf having a vigorous rootstock (Bud 118), with a dwarfing section added, that does not need as much summer water. INTERSTEM TREES are dwarf trees. I do have some INTERSTEM DWARF trees left now. Look for the word INTERSTEM in the Varieties Available List.
Variation Due to Variety
c) The Poppys Wonder apple tree (a Cox Cross from Victoria, BC), grows only about 8 feet across so it does not spread as much as other trees. A wonderful apple.
d) Collonade Apple trees (a natural mutation of a MacIntosh tree) produce a very narrow (2 feet) tree that grows straight up to about 12 feet. No Pruning ever as it is a Spur Bearing Tree. These can be planted 3 feet apart, so make a great hedge, can be planted in pots and in locations where there is not the room for a regular tree. The original tree was called Wijick, from the Okanagan. Further breeding has produced a series called Sentinels (from BC) and Spires (from England.)
