Arkansas Black Apple Tree

Very good after months of storage.

One of the prettiest apples with a deep red color and perfect shape. Excellent for fresh eating or cooking, but best flavor is after a couple of months of storage. Very firm, tart flesh. Great addition to applesauce or cider. Late season maturity; pollinates other varieties that bloom from mid to late season. Zones 6–8.

Why buy a Deluxe package - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Quik-Cal Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.

NOTE: We are unable to ship our trees to PO Boxes at this time.
