Malus domestica 'North Pole'

North Pole™ is a bright red, crunchy, McIntosh apple that ripens in the mid-season. Enjoy these shiny red apples with that classic McIntosh crunch even in small spaces!

Columnar apple trees are trees that produce their fruit on spurs along the main stem. Columnar trees combine disease resistance, flavor, and ease of growing in small spaces as each has a narrow upright habit.

Ideally suited to grow in a container, on a patio, or as a small tree in the ground, trees grow to about 8' tall. Like other apples, you will need two different cultivars for pollination.  Columnar apple varieties bloom in the mid and mid-late seasons and are good pollinizers for any other apple variety!

Chill hours 800 to 1200. On MM106 semi-dwarf rootstock.

USDA Zone: 4-9

Mature Height: 8' (Columnar)

Very robust trees

These trees arrived in extremely good condition and very well grown. They are very stout little trees.

My columnar apple tree arrived in excellent shape and has been planted. It looks like it is getting ready to burst forth from being dormant!

It’s a stick

I thought I was getting a tree, ya know, with leaves and branches. Instead, I got a completely bare stick with dry roots. Planted it, but do not have high hopes.
