The Jonathan Apple Tree is a great first-choice for a fruit tree in your yard. It will grow from zone 5 to zone 8, so it is a good tree for both cooler and warmer areas of the country. This is an American heirloom variety that is a great favourite with everyone. Its special smell, crunchy texture, sweet but acidic white flesh and rich red skin make it the perfect apple for eating fresh or baking. It will fruit well growing all by itself and grow in any well-drained soil in a sunny location. The great thing about apples is that they store well for several months, so nothing goes to waste when you harvest your own tree-ripened apples from your own tree. Your family will love eating this delicious apple and you will save money too.

  • Heirloom variety with rich red skin
  • Sweet white flesh with crunchy texture
  • Dual-purpose – fresh or baking
  • Self-pollinating, no second tree needed
  • Vigorous and heavy cropping

The Jonathan Apple Tree grows best in a sunny spot, in well-drained soil. Water well during the first few summers, keeping grass away from a circle around the base, and mulch with organic material like compost or rotted manure. Prune and train your tree from an early age, to take up less room, and maximize the quality of your crop. Thinning of the fruit when it is still small will give you the biggest and best-quality apples. Relatively pest and disease free, so little care is needed. Crops well on its own, and even better planted with Red Delicious, the perfect choice for cross-pollination.
