Vertical Growth and Tons of Fruit, Even on Patios
The Scarlet Sentinel™ Columnar Apple Tree is not your average apple. In fact, think of a vertical appearance instead of horizontal branching to picture the growth habit on this revolutionary tree. Form and function merge into this outstanding fruit tree, which is sure to be your next favorite addition to your garden design.
And you might expect tiny apples. But the Scarlet defies this perception with a delightful surprise - you'll harvest full-sized apples. Plus, you won't see a token scattering of apples on this tree because each mature tree yields up to 75 pounds of apples!
The freshest fruits you can eat are the ones you grow in your own backyard because as soon as fruits are harvested, they immediately begin to lose their nutrients. Supermarket apples may have already been in cold storage for a long time and traveled a great distance to reach your store. The investment of buying your own apple tree pays off many times over because of the healthy harvests you'll have, year after year! Even better? You can eat Scarlet Sentinel™ Columnar Apples right off the tree, without worrying about pesticide residue, because they are resistant to apple scab.
Plus, a small yard or no yard is no problem. The slender growth of Scarlet Columnar Apple Trees opens up many container possibilities for your yard or garden. Combine the shorter height with a width that reaches only 2 feet, and you have a beautiful potted plant to place in tight spots. Even if your home is an apartment, you can plant Scarlet Sentinel™ Columnar Apple Trees in large pots for your patio.
The secret to a plentiful harvest of apples lies in the way apple tree flowers are fertilized. So, be sure to order a "pollen buddy" for your Scarlet Sentinel™ Columnar Apple Tree to ensure plenty of apples at harvest time. And get your Scarlet today!
