Pixie Crunch Apple Tree

Sweeter than 'Honeycrisp'



This sweet beauty is absolutely unparalleled for fresh eating. One bite and we guarantee you will agree. This apple "explodes" with a breaking crispness, tantalizing your taste buds with mouthwatering flavor and juiciness. Delectable sweetness works wonders in no-sugar pie recipes and baked goods—cooks up tender every time. A favorite apple with children because of its flavor. We've seen kids choose this over candy and sweets! As if being tops in taste were not enough, Pixie also bears reliable annual crops starting in its third year for standard trees and often in its second for Li'l-BIGs, handling late frosts much better than other varieties. Matures late August. Zones 5-8. U.S. Patent No. 13871.

Zones: 5 - 8 (-10° F.).
Height: 22 - 25 feet for standard, 6 feet for Li'l BIG.
Shade Requirement: Full sun.

Awesome Apple Tree
Reviewed By: Lance Dunkin (Patterson, AR)
Ordered this tree about 3 years ago. Planted it and cared for it pretty well. The results totally blow me away. When I received the tree in the mail, it was about 2 1/2 to 3 feet tall and a 1/3 of an inch in diameter with a canopy of no more than a couple of inches. Now, it's over 12 feet tall, more than 4 inches in diameter and has about 20 or more small apples. The canopy is about 8 foot in diameter. All I did was water it every 2 weeks or so and put compost manure at the base every month or so. Superb results, would most certainly buy it again.

Very Happy
Reviewed By: Kerry (Allegan, MI)
Just ordered the pixie crunch in May. Was a little doubtful since is looked like a dead stick when it got here. Now less than a month later it is covered with leaves and even has some blossoms. I did not expect any blossoms until the second year. I am very happy with the tree so far and can hardly wait till next season.

Good and Bad
Reviewed By: Joey (Manhattan, Kansas)
I have 4 Pixie Apples growing in my orchard. I'm really happy with the growth rate as even in the 1st year, I had almost 2 feet of growth. And in the 2nd year they're growing just as good. My only complaint is that they are susceptible to cedar rust. All 4 of my trees are loaded with bright orange spots on it. So if you're close to Cedars, either plan on spraying this tree regularly or choose a tree variety like the Liberty or Sundance with much better resistance.

Too small a tree
Reviewed By: G.Y. (Dallas, Tx)
Ordered this bare root tree in May this year. So far it has new leaves, and seemed survived. But the tree was too small to begin with. The height was about 2 feet and trunk/branches were like pencils and the leaves were penny size. To me, this tree needs 3-4 more years to produce any thing. So 4 stars is mainly for its surviving Texas hot temp. so far.

Great tree
Reviewed By: Krista (Dewey, Az)
We ordered this tree last fall and a golden pixie this spring. Both came bareroot and I was doubtful. They are both putting out leaves and are growing well, even in our dry hot climate with poor soil.

Bushes out fast
Reviewed By: Henry (Bonne Terre, MO)
I ordered over a thousand dollars worth of fruit and nut trees and berry bushes from Gurney's this spring. These little apple trees are doing better than anything else I ordered. I bought two of these and planted them about 2 and a half months ago. They came as a stick with all the limbs cut off and just a bare root. But, they now have newly grown limbs and leaves all over. The limbs have already grown from six to eight inches in the short time they've been planted.

Pleased in WV

I received my trees this spring, and was pleased with the size and condition of all of them. I planted them and they grew fast, with many new limbs. some of the limbs grew up to 4', and still have some leaves even after temps down to 18 degrees and its Christmas time in WV.

Pixie Crunch
Reviewed By: ID (CDA, ID)
This is one outstanding apple!! Its easy to grow and tastes better than anything you can find in your Stores. Flesh is yellow; extremely crisp and breaking, yet somewhat melting; medium to fine grained; juicy; moderately to mildly acid, rich, spicy, full flavored; excellent for up to one month after harvest. Better than Honeycrisp off the tree but not sure about after a few months of storage. May be the reason its not in stores now.
