Ask a Question
  • Will Pristine, William's Pride and Honeycrisp work to pollinate one another? Thank you!

    No. There is too much of a bloom time gap between Pristine and Honeycrisp. You will need a bloom group 3 (mid season) apple to bridge the gap and provide cross polliantion. William's Pride is a group 1 (early season) bloomer. Refer to the Apple Growing Guide for a full list.

  • What caliper are the fruit trees when shipped?

    Usually 1/2"-3/4" caliper at shipping, but your results may vary.

We planted

We planted our trees right away and have been watering. The Pristine has no leaves. The Sansa has leaves coming out on it and seems to be doing great. Not sure what to think about the Pristine ?


Ordered 6 trees of different varieties, this tree had the best root structure of them all. Upon planting and pruning down to 4 shorted branches. All buds produced leaves and there has been strong growth. Currently 4-6 weeks after planting and one of the 4 branches got firelight mostly on new growth. Immediately cut back the entire branch to the stem. Haven't seen any more signs of fireblight. This is very disconcerting considering the plant is so young and it should have partial resistance. If there is anymore fireblight the tree will probably not survive being cut back to the main stem.

Pristine Heaven

I am 71 and have had many many different apples in my days ,, this one stands out as one of the best in my book ,, a very prolific, healthy, fantastic tasting apple ,, they might last a long time except that I eat all of them ,, so I would not be the best person to ask about shelf life ,,, my young Pristine trees have produced so heavily that they broke some of the branches ,,, I cannot imagine anyone being sorry that they planted one or more of these ,, I am hooked ,
