Grow Your Own Apples Anywhere!

Few things are as American as apple pie. Unfortunately, few of us have space in our yards for an apple orchard, or even an apple tree.

“Tasty Red Urban Apple” (Malus domestica x 'UEB 3449-1') is going to change that! This is not your typical apple tree. It grows 8 to 10 feet tall but only 2 feet wide. You read that right – only 2 feet wide. That means that this tree is perfectly sized for urban gardens. It grows well in a bed and excels in a large container.

In the spring the ramrod straight branches are covered in romantic, sweet-scented apple blossoms. In the fall they are covered in full-sized delicious apples nestled along the limbs like Brussels sprouts. Imagine being able to pick full-sized apples straight from your patio or balcony!

This isn’t some apple-pie-in-the-sky dream either. These apples will grow the first year you plant the tree and only have higher yields every year after that! (These beauties need a pollinator so plant “Tasty Red” with its sister “Tangy Green Urban Apple” in twin containers on the patio, flanking the entrance or in the garden bed. You’ll double the yield and double the fun!)

It’s hard to believe but totally true. You can grow apples in any sized garden – even on your balcony – with the new Urban Apples.

Order yours today and see for yourself!

* Very easy care
* Only 2 feet wide!
* No pruning needed
* Full-sized, sweet, juicy apples
* Spring flowers
