Apple - 'Honeygold' Semi-Dwarf Apple Tree
Similar taste to 'Golden Delicious' but with a hint of honey, the 'Honeygold' apple is juicy and delightful for fresh-eating, salads, and cooking. A cold-hardy tree excellent in northern climates that bears pinkish-white blooms in spring that mature to medium to large size fruit in summer.
Honeygold' boasts hardiness to zone 3 tolerating temperatures down to -50 degrees Farenheit. Trees bear fruit between 2-3 years after planting. Growth rate is moderate and trees reach 12-16 feet tall and wide. 'Honeygold' needs moist, well-drained soil in full sunlight. This tree does not like to have wet feet, though, so be sure to plant in areas that don't experience pooling of water. As is true for apple trees in general, be sure to provide adequate drainage. Disease-resistant and hardy against apple-scab. Requires another variety of apple/crabapple tree for pollination. Could be paired with 'Granny Smith', 'Honeycrisp', 'Fuji', 'Red Delicious', 'McIntosh'. Fruit ripens in late September and can be stored for 2-3 months.
