Pixie Crunch™ Apple Tree

Sweeter than 'Honeycrisp'

  • Crisp with mouthwatering flavor and juiciness
  • Taste-test winner
  • Easier to grow than Honeycrisp
  • Matures in late August
  • Handles late frost better than other varieties
  • Available in Reachables size

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, handling late frosts much better than other varieties. Matures late August. Zones 5-8. PP13871.

Now available in Reachables size! A Reachables tree produces full-sized fruits, but on a smaller tree. That 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.

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.

  • Pruning: Prune in late winter/early spring, while trees are still dormant. There are normally two goals when pruning an apple tree: 1. Initially, on young trees, to encourage a strong, solid framework. 2. On mature trees to maintain shape, maximize sun exposure and encourage fruit production. You will also want to remove any suckers coming from the rootstock. Unwanted shoots and suckers can be removed at any time. Also remove any crossed, crowded or inward-growing limbs in late winter or very early sprin
  • Comments: A newly named Exclusive from Purdue, it was introduced in 2001. The tree is a small-sized version of Rome Beauty and easily managed. Quick to bear, annually productive like Goldrush. The texture is similar to Honeycrisp, but this one is much sweeter.
