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. 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 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.

Did you know…Pixie Crunch is a crowd favorite—great for baked goods or fresh from the tree—with a delectable sweetness few others can match.

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