The Goodland Apple, Malus 'Goodland', has very good cold hardiness and adapts well to most soil types. It is one of the best apples for the colder regions and is also resistant to fireblight. This apple is washed red over creamy green, and the flesh of Goodland is crisp, juicy and aromatic. Goodland stores very well and is excellent for eating. Its fruit ripens in early to mid-September. The fruit of the Goodland apple trees that are established in protected, bright sunny locations usually ripen in the latter part of August. Plant about a month after the first killing frost in the fall or about a month before the last killing frost in the spring. Select a planting site that has good air, drainage, full sunlight and deep, well drained soil.
