Anna Apple Tree has low chill requirements, making it one of the best apple varieties for the Coastal South and zone 9. Standard-sized trees usually begin producing large, crisp, sweet and spritely flavored apples in 3-5 years—and Reachables trees produce even sooner! The light green-yellow apples have a red blush and store for up to two months. They are good for eating fresh, desserts and applesauce. The fruits ripen in mid-June to early July, and in some southern areas, the tree may produce a second, late-season crop. The recommended pollinator is Dorsett apple or Ein Shemer. 200-300 chill hours are required for a successful harvest. Zones 6-9.
