Apple - 'Goodland' Apple Tree
Goodland' is a sweet, early apple, ready to harvest in late summer to early fall. It's large, light green/blush red fruit has a mild, aromatic flavor and is typically used for fresh eating, cooking, and applesauce. The clusters of lightly-scented white flowers with shell pink overtones emerge in spring with beautiful green foliage that turns yellow in the fall making this small tree an excellent ornamental choice as well.
Goodland' Apple tree does well in colder climates as low as zone 3. It grows at a medium rate to a height around 20 feet and a spread of about 15-20 feet as well. The canopy sits four feet above the ground and this tree would be suitable for planting under power lines. It typically lives 50 years or more and needs a pollinator of another apple/crabapple variety to produce fruit. It should only be grown in full sunlight. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH and is highly tolerant of urban pollution. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid that will even thrive in inner city environments. Best pruned in late winter once the threat of extreme cold has passed.
