ON SALE - One arm is broken on one side of one of the tiers, so we are cutting the price to help these (otherwise) beautiful trees a home!
Each branching tier normally has two arms trained out to the right and to the left. These trees suffered a crack or bend to one of the arms on either the first or second tier. This means that that branch will likely not grow out, but after the tree has been established for a year, the tree would be a great candidate for grafting any variety to the central leader (trunk) of the tree, so that you can train a new arm to grow out.
Already formed as a 2-tier espaliered tree! Three-year tree in the field, with 2 years growth training the top shape. The first tier starts at 24" from the ground; second tier starts 15" higher (or 39" from the ground); there may be starting buds at a third tier level which starts another 15" higher (or 54" above the ground). The central leader ("trunk") is removed above 54". Outstanding sweet apple for warm winter areas. Firm, very flavorful, sweet like Golden Delicious. Productive throughout So. CA and Phoenix, AZ. Good, sweet summer apple!
