Malus domestica 'Liberty'

This tree is currently the most disease-resistant apple on the planet! Dark, polished red skin and intense, sprightly flavor make this medium size, elongated apple a favorite.

Trees that were bred in New York for high scab and mildew resistance thrive in the Pacific Northwest and throughout most of the nation. Every year, a large crop ripens on this spreading tree late midseason, in early October in the PNW.

Ask a Question
  • I need a dwarf apple tree for zone 6,do I need to buy two apple trees for the purpose of pollination? Interested in honey crips

    You will need a honeycrisp and anothet compatible pollinator. Check our our apple growing guide for a full breakdown of pollination and a bloom order chart.

  • What size is the rootstock on espalier trees?

    EMLA26 Dwarf rootstock

  • What is "somewhat self fertile" mean? What will the yield be without another apple tree for pollination?

    In some areas Liberty will yield a partial crop of apples without cross pollination. It will yield a larger crop, and be more reliable, with cross pollination.

  • I am in western North Carolina, zone 7a, and am wondering if this Liberty apple would do well with a Beni Shogun for pollination?

    Yes they should cross pollinate just fine.

  • will this pollinate a cosmic crisp or will i need 2 apple varieties?

    Liberty will cross pollinate with Cosmic Crisp.

  • Will an established red delicious pollinate a Liberty apple?

    Yes they should cross pollinate just fine.

  • Will William's Pride be a suitable pollinator for Liberty apple trees and vice versa?

    Yes they should cross pollinate just fine.

  • How tall are these trees when shipped? When can we expect fruit from them?

    4'-5' tall when shipped and should fruit within the first 2-3 years of planting.

  • Would this pollinate an Empire apple tree?

    They are both mid season bloomers so yes!

Arrived healthy and ready to plant!

I was so impressed with the way Raintree ships their 3-Tier espaliered Liberty apple trees! They arrived in beautiful condition and we were able to plant right away (zone 7). In just three days we are already seeing beautiful green leaves. I will keep you posted on how they grow, but we are very happy so far!

Beautiful Apple Tree

My Liberty Apple arrived perfectly! Couldn’t plant right away so I stored it as suggested. When I did plant it this past Saturday, I marveled at how perfectly shaped it is. A beautiful central leader with just the right amount of branches. She’s my first fruit tree and I can’t wait to help her grow.

Happy Apple trees!

My trees are beautiful,packed perfect,arrived on time .oh by the way not only are my trees happy so am I.😄
