The Northern Spy Apple Tree produces large, round, often flattened greenish yellow fruit with pinkish red stripes, a light bloom, and occasional russet patches. The fruit is fine grained, rather firm, very tender, crisp, juicy yellowish flesh and has a tart, aromatic, subacid flavor.
Excellent all purpose apple except for drying and cider. Easily keeps into March and tastes excellent.
Very large, vigorous, productive, upright tree with a biennial tendency. Can take a long time to produce, but is well worth the wait.
Zones: 4-7 (requires 800 hours of chilling)
Late season ripening
3 foot bare root tree
Bud9 Rootstock, Full height 10′
We highly recommend protecting your trees with a tree tube
Growing trees in the Northeast has proved challenging. One of our main struggles has been with deer and other tree nibbling predators.
Not only were our orchard trees being nibbled and rubbed, but now the deer/rabbits/porcupines/voles and more were heading towards our nursery stock.
I guess when you set out a buffet, the animals say ‘THANKS!’
We decided to purchase a few hundred TREE PRO Miracle Tree Tubes and were quickly sold on the benefits.
Trees that seemed to be stuck in their growth were now growing. We no longer had to constantly move electric fencing. Even trees in remote areas on the farm were thriving.
Where we had ordered them last year to offer to you, Tree Pro started selling them on Amazon (of course) and they are cheaper and offer FREE Shipping. We still highly recommend them!
