The State Fair Apple Tree (Malus x 'State Fair') is a go-to choice for home growers with an eye for beauty and a palate for balanced apples. This lovely apple tree offers a stunning display of highly fragrant blooms and apples that glow in shades of yellow, red, and green.
The State Fair Apple Tree is a semi-dwarf that produces medium-sized apples that are sweet yet tart and juicy. These lovely globes of goodness store for up to a month and make the perfect snack to send with the kids' lunches since they ripen from September to October.
As these brilliant apples ripen on the branch, you will enjoy the bunches of multi-colored apples that blush in stripes of coloration from yellow to green to red with precious freckles.
These all-purpose apples will happily fit into any culinary niche you have. They are slightly acidic, so they do well in pies and as an amazing ice cream topping. State Fair Apples also make a great choice for salads, ciders, and apple juice.
While the State Fair Apple Tree's fruit is excellent, many gardeners celebrate this tree's floriferous blooming season. This petite apple tree explodes with large clusters of white-to-rose pink blooms that smell as great as they look.
Schedule some time in spring to watch the bees float from bloom to bloom as you dream of an impending apple season.
This cold-hardy apple tree loves full sun and requires a buddy for full pollination. You can choose from a white-blossoming crabapple, Granny Smith, Pink Pearl, Dolgo, or Fameuse. You can even put them both in the same hole to conserve garden space.
You don't have to worry about living in an urban setting, the State Fair Apple Tree doesn't mind a city setting. Looking for an apple that is attractive and tastiness to bring to the state fair? Want to bake an award-winning pie? Order your ticket and purchase a State Fair Apple Tree now.
