Sundance™ Apple

Crisp & Delicious With Hints of Pineapple

Large fruit has porcelain to yellowish-green skin, often with a red blush and creamy white flesh. Delightful popping-crisp texture is ideal for fresh eating and pies— it holds the texture and bakes up perfectly— not too hard and never gets mushy. Exceptional sweet-tart flavor; sugary with refreshing hints of pineapple and lemon. Matures mid to late October, but hangs on the tree up to a month without loss of quality. Stores for up to 4 months in refrigerator— so you can enjoy them into winter! Excellent resistance to scab and cedar apple rust. Zones 5-8. U.S. Patent No. 13819.

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: The only scab immune, yellow variety that had legitimate resistance to cedar rust. From the Purdue breeding program. High sugar content. Very high fruit quality. Fruit does not drop prematurely. Sundance apples are sweet with a slight pineapple-like flavor.
