alus domestica 'Tasty Red'

Tasty Red™ is a bright red, firm, sweet, juicy apple that ripens early mid-season.

Urban® apples are NEW columnar trees that produce their fruit on spurs along the main stem. Each combines disease resistance, flavor, and ease of growing in small spaces. 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.  Each Urban® apple variety blooms mid-season and is a good pollinizer for any other.

They are each highly disease resistant selections from Dr. Jaroslav Tupy of the Czech Republic. USDA Zones 4-9. Chill hours 800 to 1200. On MM106 semi-dwarf rootstock.

  • It would be helpful for me to have some idea of the flavor of the apples, how well they keep and the texture of the flesh.

    This is a red McIntosh apple and has all the qualities McIntosh is famous for - sweet subacid profile, clean crunchy texture, and good storage times.

I got 4 columnar apple trees from Raintree in Spring 2021. They all have grown a ton and look great! So cool.

Great Space Saver

I planted one of these in May of 2021. By September the tree has grown to five feet in a raised bed. Apples were to small to eat, but that was to be expected. I ordered a pollinator, another urban apple tree, from another source. The Raintree bare root had a much larger root system, which explains why it is now two feet taller than the other. Raintree did an excellent job with this
