Pink Lady Apple Tree Information and Care
A beautiful woody deciduous fruit tree, the Pink Lady apple blossoms in Spring. Fruits ripen late in the Summer to early Fall. While in many areas fruit ripe in October, other areas is sooner. Plant in the Full Sun and well draining soil. Use high quality planting mix and fertilizer.
Prune to keep trees small in home orchards. Many trim every winter and thin in the Summer to keep trees as small as 8-10 feet tall and wide, but will grow larger if allowed. Can grow as large as >15-20 feet tall.
Water newly planted trees weekly during the Spring and twice per week in the Summer. Reduce water frequency in the Fall and discontinue supplemental water in the Winter.
Fertilize with organic fruit tree fertilizer in the late winter, spring, and summer to promote growth and fruit development. Do not fertilize in the Fall.
Finally, use organic horticultural oils in the Winter to prevent soft bodied insects.
