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.

USDA Zone: 4-9

Mature Height: 8'-10' Columnar

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: Early Mid-Season

Pollination: Needs a Pollinizer

Semi-Dwarf Rootstock: MM106

Size: Semi-Dwarf (2'-3')


Ask a Question
  • Would this be a good pollinizer for the tangy columnar?

    Any apple in bloom groups 2-4 will be fine. For a list please check out our Apple Growing Guide.

  • 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.

Great urban fruit trees

After planting they leafed out.
Looking forward to nice apples

Super excited

Tree came shipped well, carefully. In dormant state, I have had it planted in the ground for about 2 weeks now and it has started budding leaves already. I was nervous because of negative reviews online from this company. But I am happy with my purchase. Everything looked healthy and so far so good. Hoping it will produce lots of fruit in years to come!

New trees!

Trees arrived well packed and with roots moist. I put them in a water bucket till planting a day later. Still dormant, but it’s soon and stick early and chilly in the North Country. Eager to see some life.

protecting columnar apples

I sew up a long piece of black nylon netting from the fabric store into a long pillowcase shape and slip it over the columnar apples after pollination. Before doing this I thin the nickel-size fruit. It's tied to the trunk at the bottom with a bit of twine. No insect, raccoon, or bird damage ever! The netting lasts several years if brought inside after harvest, and the black is pretty inconspicuous.
