Scarlet Sentinal™ and White Icicle™ Patio Apple Tree Kit

Item #27955


Cross-pollinating dwarf duo | Suitable for containers

Apple trees require cross-pollination at blossom time for fruit to develop. Cross-pollination is the transfer of pollen, typically by honeybees, from one variety to a different variety of the same type tree. But you don't need to worry about that because we've done the research for you and have included 2 very popular and mutually beneficial varieties in this Apple Tree Duo that work best together for the easiest and most abundant apple growing possible.

Scarlet Sentinal™ and White Icicle™ Patio Apple Tree Kit are columnar varieties that have virtually no branches and bear fruit along the main trunk. Perfect for small spaces, these dwarf trees can even be grown in large patio containers and pruned heavily to maintain their small size. They are cold hardy to Zone 4.

White Icicle™ becomes a striking pillar of snow-white flowers in spring followed by an abundant crop of large, attractive, red fruit in early September. White Icicle™ is very resistant to apple scab. The white-fleshed apples are crisp, juicy, and sweet, good for fresh eating, baking, canning, and cider making.

Scarlet Sentinel™ produces clusters of bright white flowers in spring followed by a good crop of exceptionally large, greenish yellow fruit with an attractive red blush in mid to late September. The apples are very juicy and sweet, good for fresh eating, baking, canning, and cider making.

The trees fruit 1 to 2 years after planting and attract the all-important honeybees. Keep in mind that most pesticides are toxic to bees and should not be used during bloom time. Bees are most active when the temperature is above 65 degrees Fahrenheit and winds are below 10 miles an hour. For best pollination place the trees within 100 feet of each other. A greater distance between them may result in poor pollination. Plant trees in full sun (at least 4 hours) and in moderately fertile, well-drained soil.

These trees were developed from Geneva 202 root stock and are non-GMO items, grown with sustainable and ecologically sound growing practices. They are 3 to 4 feet tall when shipped.
