The Benefits Of Growing Fruiting Apple Trees

Apple trees have a long history as a favored fruit tree in home gardens and commercially. The United States produces about 90% of the commercial crop, with approximately 16% coming from California. There are many benefits to growing fruiting apple trees.

1. Apples are eaten raw but are mainly used for cooking purposes. They can be used in desserts and pies to accompany pork, poultry, and vegetables. Apples are also made into cider and apple juice.

2. Apples can be grown successfully by beginner and experienced gardeners. They grow well in various soils, from heavy clay to sandy loam, although they require fertile, well-drained soil.

3. Apples have a relatively short growing period, being ready to harvest 110-160 days after fruit buds begin to set in the spring. Planting time is April/May or September/October, depending on the climate in your area of the country.
