Three-Tier Combo Apple, Espalier
Malus domestica ('Fuji', 'Honeycrisp', 'Gala', grafted)
|Description||An espalier-tiered form perfect for small back yards and kitchen gardens, placed along a wall or fence! Three delicious self-pollinating varieties carefully selected to grow well together and ripen over an extended season: Fuji, Honeycrisp, and Gala. Easily pruned annually to maintain formal tiered structure. Deciduous.|
|Watering||Once established water during dry spells.|
|Mature Size||Reaches 15 to 25 ft. tall, 15 to 20 ft. wide; smaller with annual pruning.|
|Care||Provide enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to develop an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Apply fertilizer in early spring. Prune as needed to remove dead wood and to maintain desired size and shape. Thin heavy crops in late spring to prevent damage from overbearing.|
|Lore||This tree is grafted with three varieties intended to extend the harvest season in today's smaller gardens: Honeycrisp with its large red, crisp, deliciously sweet fruit, well-suited for fresh eating and cooking, and equally suited for pressing for cider, ripening in September; and Gala, from New Zealand, has red-orange skin, very crisp white flesh with a tangy-sweet flavor, also ripening in September; and the popular Fuji with an exceptional, spicy, crisp sweetness, typically ripening in October.|
