"The Easiest to Grow Fruit Trees!"
Originating from a Canadian breeding program, these unique, hardy and disease-resistant varieties are prized for their unusual, upright form. An attractive complement to the landscape, patio or deck, our Columnar varieties will grow to 10-12 feet in height, but can be topped at any desired height. Columnar Apples often produce short upright branches which can be left to increase fruit production or pruned off. Our Columnar Apples are hardy to approximately Zone 4 and will pollinate each other or can be pollinated by other apple varieties.
This productive and exceptionally disease-resistant variety bears large and attractive, golden-yellow fruit. Sweet, juicy and delicious, it ripens in mid-September and can be stored until January. Golden Sentinel is good for fresh eating and makes delicious pies and sauce.
