CARE
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.
HISTORY
Lore This tree is grafted with three varieties intended to extend the harvest season in today's smaller gardens: Akane, a sweet, rich, early season dessert apple, excellent for fresh eating and drying, ripening August to September; 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 Liberty, with red, crisp and refreshing, juicy fruit, ready to harvest in October.
