Get your baskets ready for a huge harvest. Eat right off the tree and enjoy a crisp tart taste of the white/yellow flesh. The apple tastes even better if kept for 30 days in the fridge. Its superior storing quality stays fresh for up to 8 months. Bake in a pie. Puree into applesauce, or have friends over for a cider party. The fruit also dries well, making it perfect for granola or trail mix.
Keep the doctor away with the apple's numerous health benefits. Each fruit is loaded with fiber, and Vitamins A and C. Plus, it's a valuable digestive aid.
The Arkansas Black Apple's stunning looks require the littlest of upkeep. Your biggest task will be picking all the apples! Fertilize with an all-purpose organic fertilizer early in the Spring for bountiful blooms and fruits. The tree adjusts to most well-drained soils. Keep a regular watering regiment, although the Arkansas Black can handle heat, humidity, and drought. It's also cold-hardy up to -29 F. It's also one of the most pest and disease resistant apple trees. It's especially immune to the dreaded Cedar Apple Rust that attacks most other apple trees.
Prune early in the spring for your tree's best health. Cut each year to a height where you can still reach the apples. It's compact size allows the tree to be planted near almost any other landscape feature.
Although the Arkansas Black Apple is self-fertile, it will benefit from other apple tree pollinators. Since it's blooming time is later in the season, it can pollinate from almost any species of apple tree. Extra pollination means extra fruits!
Get your Arkansas Black Apple Tree today and enjoy a burst of color, fragrance, and flavor like no other!
