The Arkansas Black Apple Tree is a vigorous and hardy heirloom apple variety that has the darkest red skin of any apple. The crisp white flesh is tasty, full of subtle flavors typical of vintage varieties. It crops late, in October or November, and stores for 6 to 8 months in suitable conditions. The skin becomes even darker in storage, and the flesh softer and sweeter. It carries a heavy crop, and is pollinated by many other apple varieties.

  • Intense dark-red to near-black skin
  • Delicious crisp, white flesh
  • Late harvest in October
  • Stores for up to 8 months
  • Ideal for juice, baking and jelly

Plant the Arkansas Black Apple Tree in full sun, in any well-drained soil. Enrich with organic material when planting, and use as mulch as your tree grows. Resistant to diseases and rarely troubled by pests, this variety grows across a wide area of the country, needing 800 to 900 chilling hours. Prune while young to develop a broad, open form, and thin heavy crops as necessary to produce top-quality fruit.
