3 Tier Honeycrisp Apple Espalier/M26 [SPRING]
'Espalier' refers to special practices for training trees onto trellises. There are many ways to make your trees into works of art, and the trees we offer have already been trained along the same plane in a 3-tier, T-shape, horizontal cordon. Beautiful when grown against a wall, a building or on an existing fence or wires.
Trees should be spaced an average of 8-10' apart. Branches are at about 1-1/2, 2-1/2 and 3-1/2 feet. Each branch will be labeled.
Honeycrisp: A superior quality red apple with an outstanding crisp texture and a juicy combination of sweet and tart flavors. You can pick it in September, but it develops its full aromatic flavor if left on the tree until mid October. It is among the most winter hardy, showing little damage at minus 40 deg. F. It's somewhat scab resistant and has not shown problems with fireblight. It is wonderful fresh and great for pies, crisps and applesauce. New from the U of Minnesota. Best fruit quality in the Northern half of the country.
