Liberty Apple Tree

FREE $25 Off Any Order Of $50 Or More!
 

The First True Low-Spray Apple

Fabulous for fresh eating, juice and sauce, this crunchy, mildly tart apple is much like an easy-to-grow version of McIntosh. Resists scab, fire blight and cedar apple rust—the name actually refers to the breeder's quest to free the grower from endless spraying! Ripens early Oct.

Zones: 5 - 8 (-10° F.).
Height: 25 feet for standard, 6 feet for Li'l BIG.
Shade Requirement: Full sun.

Grows well
Reviewed By: Diane (Colonial Heights, VA)
When I received this dwarf tree and another dwarf apple tree they were "apple sticks." Meaning they had NO branches and the top was cut off so it literally was a stick. This tree doubled in size in 3 months. It developed a couple long branches. Overall, not as disease resistant as the Sundance apple for some reason. It seems that aphids seem to like this tree. However, it is surviving well so far and I am happy with the purchase. Don't be frightened by the stick you may receive.

My First Apple Tree
Reviewed By: Linda Harbison (Flatwoods, KY)
My semi-dwarf Liberty is now about four years old. I knew next to nothing about apple trees when I got it, and I have to say that this has been a positive experience. The tree has established itself well and it produced a few apples the very first year. This year I got a bumper crop. I have used nothing on them except Neem and the occasional dusting of diatomaceous earth. They are not perfect, but they taste great.

Liberty Standard Deluxe
Reviewed By: Rick (Hudson, Michigan)
I was very pleasently surprised when I opened the box last week and a well rooted robust tree was revealed. Certainly not your typical mailorder stock. Very nice!

Not impressed
Reviewed By: SB Collins (Nampa, Idaho)
Got my tree this week. Man this thing is small with no branches. Not impressed with the development of the tree at all. I would think the thing would have a couple branches at least. Save your money and got to a local nursrey and buy somthing that is already established.

Excellent disease resistance
Reviewed By: Todd (Raymond, NE)
Cedar apple rust is a big concern in my area, as there are many cedar trees around here. I have ten different varieties of apple trees and Liberty is one of three that I have that shows excellent resistance to cedar apple rust. The flavor is really good, also.
