Rubinette Apple Tree

Intense Honey Flavor for Fresh Eating

Has been described as "quite possibly the world's best tasting apple," but you'll have to decide for yourself. This cross of Cox's Orange Pippin and Golden Delicious features a rich combination of sweet, tart and intense honey flavors making it a top choice for fresh eating and juice. Ripens in late September-early October. Zones 4-9.

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.
