Golden Sentinel Columnar Apple
A great apple tree for small (very small) spaces!
Don’t have the room or the inclination to grow a full-on apple orchard in your backyard but you love the idea of having fresh apples? Golden Sentinel Columnar Apple Tree is the tree that you’ve been waiting for!
This neat little cultivar was discovered in Canada several years ago and has become a bit of a sensation in the gardening world. It will for sure be a sensation in your neighborhood! The tree grows completely vertically with no branching to speak of. The apples grow in clusters all along the tree trunk, like brussels sprouts. It is just about as unique a sight as you’ll see in the garden!
The apples are very large and an attractive golden-yellow. They are treat to eat fresh – deliciously sweet and juicy. They ripen in mid-September and often produce a crop the first year after planting. They are naturally dwarfish, only reaching 10-12 feet tall (and only 1 to 2 feet wide!). They can be pollinated by any other apple tree, so buy a couple for best fruit production.
Imagine a pair of these flanking your sunny entryway, or in large pots on the edges of your sunny balcony in the city.
Definitely order two or more of these when you order. Don’t wait! The sooner you plant, the sooner you’ll be eating the fresh, delicious Golden Sentinel apples from your own yard!
