Malus domestica 'Arkansas Black'

A favorite across the nation, this heritage apple's dark red fruit turns nearly blackish when it's fully ripe, and its tart flavor mellows in storage. Good for eating, keeping, and cidermaking!

Ripening late in the season, Arkansas Black is an reliable producer and is somewhat resistant to cedar-apple rust and fireblight. Its mid-late bloom makes it a good pollinizer for all but the earliest-blooming varieties. Considered a low-chill variety needing only 500-600 chill hours. On MM106 semi-dwarf rootstock. 

USDA Zone: 4-9

Grow Height: 14' (Semi Dwarf)

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: October

Pollination: Needs a Pollinizer
