Pixie Crunch™ Reachables™ Apple Tree

Sweeter than Honeycrisp

This sweet beauty is 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. A best-tasting apple choice in our trials. 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, handling late frosts much better than other varieties. Matures late August. Zones 5-8. PP13871.

Now available in Reachables™ size! Pixie Crunch™ Reachables™ Apple Tree produces full-sized fruits, but on a smaller tree. This makes it easier to fit into your garden, orchard—or even a container. It's also easier to manage than full-sized trees. One person can prune, spray, net and harvest the tree—all while standing on the ground. Note: Because their full-sized fruits grow on smaller trees, Reachables™ require a tree support.

Produces in Less Than 2 Years! Our Reachables™ trees bear a small fruit crop in under two years—and larger crops in the subsequent years.

Easy to Plant! The fully leafed-out Reachables™ tree ships with a bamboo stake that provides temporary support until replaced with a sturdy tree support. The tree is potted in an Ellepot. Made of biodegradable paper, Ellepots can be planted directly into the ground.

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