An apple is a fruit produced by an apple tree (Malus domestica). Apple trees are cultivated worldwide and are the most widely grown species in the genus Malus. The tree originated in Central Asia, where its wild ancestor, Malus sieversii, is still found today. Apples have been grown for thousands of years in Asia and Europe and were brought to North America by European colonists. Apples have religious and mythological significance in many cultures, including Norse, Greek, and European Christian tradition.

  • CULTIVATION

Before you think about choosing an apple tree for your garden, it is important to consider whether apples are right for your area. The wide variety of apples means that there are suitable varieties for most temperate climate gardens. However, apple trees will need to be provided with suitable conditions in order to grow well.

Apple trees need a sunny and relatively sheltered spot, away from any frost pockets. The trees prefer a sheltered position in full sun but will put up with a fair amount of shade and may benefit from some shade at mid-summer. Make sure, however, that apples always get at least half a day’s sunshine during the fruit ripening period. They will do best in a moisture retentive yet relatively free-draining soil. If your site is prone to waterlogging or flooding, or has particularly shallow soil, then an apple tree will likely not be the best choice. Apples will do best in a well-drained loam that is at least 2ft deep.
