Apple Tree - Arkansas Black

Outstanding Color and Flavor


Arkansas Black Apple Tree is a late-maturing apple tree.  One would be an outstanding addition to your yard in any sunny location where you can view it from one of your home’s windows…as you won’t want to miss a moment of your tempting harvest’s development.


Your Arkansas Black Apple tree is not only a lovely and hardy tree, but it also produces a substantial harvest of succulent, sweet apples.  The decorative effect of the dark red apples against the vibrant green of the foliage is not to be missed! 


Each round, medium-sized apple is such a deep red as to appear almost black, especially when stored.  The firm skin shines purple-red in the sunlight and tends to persist on the tree into the fall, making it a favorite of wildlife.


As an eating apple, few can compare to the Arkansas Black.  Exquisite directly from the tree, or used in a variety of dishes, the crisp, white/yellow flesh is superb.  With a sweet/tart flavor in a firm yet juicy texture, your Arkansas Black Apple is a treat for the senses. 


Especially prized for its aromatic nature, it also lends itself well to ciders and applesauce.  Arkansas Black has an excellent storage life, affording you many months of enjoyment.


A semi-dwarf tree, your Arkansas Black will grow to about 20 feet in height.  It’s quite hardy and vigorous, with particular resistance to Cedar Apple Rust.  It has very good heat and humidity tolerance and is even somewhat drought tolerant once established.  Arkansas Black is adaptable to a variety of soil types and has very good overall disease resistance. 


Although self-fertile, the Arkansas Black does best with a pollinator in order to bear fruit.  Golden Delicious Apple, Granny Smith Apple and Dolgo Crabapple would be good choices as companion trees. 


 Whether planting just one or an entire orchard, you’re sure to enjoy the Arkansas Black Apple.


* High quality eating and cooking apple
* Good storage

Great apples for all uses Review by ladykelien

from eating, to storing to making apple sauce or pies these apples are some of the best. Jenejoy to answer your question, the Arkansas black was a hybrid of a winesap created in Arkansas in the 1886. It was created to be resistant to all the unique problems Arkansas brings to apple raising.

This is by far the best apple I have ever tasted. I can hardly wait for september to roll around each year so that I can get it again when I go apple tasting. Rumor has it that it was first produced in Oak Glen, CA. Not too far from where I live and make my annual apple voyage. Anyone know if there is any truth to it?

The best eating apple I have ever had. Tart but not bitter...too bad this is not more widely produced. I purchased these apples at Fifer Orchards in Wyoming, Delaware.
