Liberty Apple Tree

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.
  • Zone 5 - 8 (-10° F.).
  • Height 25 feet for standard, 6 feet for Li'l BIG.
  • Shade Required Full sun.
