2-in-1 Double Delicious Apple Tree

Two Apple Varieties on One Tree


Enjoy apple season longer with the Double Delicious 2-IN-1 Apple Tree. This grafted tree produces Liberty and Sundance™ apples. Ripening first in early October is Liberty. The medium-to-large fruits are mildly tart and shiny, with a red blush. Liberty apples are excellent for fresh eating, juice and sauce. Maturing in mid to late October is Sundance. The large fruit has porcelain to yellowish-green skin, often with a red blush and creamy white flesh. The fruit's popping-crisp texture is ideal for fresh eating and pies. Liberty and Sundance pollinate each other and are disease resistant. Trees grow 10-15 ft. tall. Plant in full sun. Premium trees include 2 oz. of Quick-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12-oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula and premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers. 2-4 ft. bareroot.

  • Comments: Special considerations: Apple trees are grafted. Mix generous amount of organic material 15 - 18 inches into soil before planting. Seeds are a good indicator of ripeness, white if fruit is immature & brown when fruit is ripe. Fruit should part from the stem easily as well. If storing over-Winter, select unbruised & blemish free fruit. Water trees deeply in hot, dry, windy weather. After 1st yr. Fertilize with 12-12-12; 1lb. per tree.
