#ProPlantTips for Care

Give Apple trees full sun, where they will get at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day. For best results, plant them in a protected spot that has plenty of air circulation.

It should thrive in well-drained soil. If you need to improve your drainage, create a mounded heap of soil 18 inches high and 3 feet wide. Plant directly in that mound.

During the first year and each year thereafter as fruit is developing, water carefully. Provide a moderate amount of even water on a regular basis.

Winter Banana is a prolific bearer. Thin fruit set early in the season to allow for full-size apples.

Prune to correct shape and establish the structure in late winter. Prune while your tree is dormant, before new growth appears. If you want to keep the trees smaller, prune them for size control in summer.

People love the Winter Banana dessert apples. Don't wait to order these trees!
