As the weather changes and our earth settles into the next rotation of autumn and winter, it gets exciting to think about the flavors and fruits that become available throughout this special time. In her new blog post, Tonya Barnett focuses on the topic of autumn crisp apples by explaining what type of apples this tree produces, a short starter guide on how to properly plant and grow the tree and provides an estimate on how long you can expect the tree to produce.
- Autumn Crisp apples are a cross between the Golden Delicious and Monroe varieties.
- Autumn Crisp trees cannot be grown from seed, but saplings are available online and at local garden centers.
- At least 6-8 hours of sunlight a day, frequent irrigation, fertilization and pruning are needed for the trees to grow.
“One variety of apple, ‘Autumn Crisp.’ is especially prized for its use in the kitchen and for fresh eating.”
