Apple Esopus Spitzenburg

Apple Esopus Spitzenburg

Made famous as one of Thomas Jefferson's favorites in the orchards at Monticello, this firm red Apple with russet dots and juicy, yellow flesh was discovered a century earlier along the Hudson River near Esopus, New York, presumably by a Dutch settler named Spitzenburg. 'Esopus Spitzenburg' trees bloom in mid- to late season; their medium to large, round fruit ripens in late autumn and keeps well. The fruit's sweet, crisp flavor excels in desserts, and sweet or hard cider.

Apples grow best in well-drained soils on a gentle slope with good air movement, with 6–8 hours of sun per day. Best pollination occurs when two or more varieties are planted in proximity. Our plant has a semi-dwarf rootstock, which means it will mature at about 50% the size of a standard Apple tree. Bareroot tree, about 4ft tall with 1/2in trunk.

Please note: Semi-dwarf Apple trees will sometimes fruit the first year after planting, and usually will fruit by the second year. However, experienced growers recommend that you remove any fruit for several years after planting so that your young tree can put all its energy into establishing strong roots and branches.
