The Hawaii apple is a cross between two outstanding apple varieties the Gravenstein and Golden Delicious. The fruit has a  a juicy, crisp breaking flesh with a sweet full bodied flavor.  Many folks consider this variety one of the  best dessert apples out west. Hawaii apples (as with all apples)  may vary in sweetness and character depending on climate and soil. Such is the case with many describing pineapple flavor.  If you're looking for more pineapple flavor consider Annas Reinette, Ernst Bosch, Goldrush, and/or Pitmaston Pineapple.   We also experience the intense sweetness, and hefty, juicy crunch.  The skin is often soft yellow blushed pink/orange.  The Hawaii apple is a vigorous growing tree that  tends towards biannually fruiting.  Thin heavily for best results. The Hawaii trees are cedar apple rust resistant.

Basic idea for Pruning:  Most fruit trees should be pruned in frost-free periods mid to late winter. (apricots best after bud break) Remove most vertical branches and shorten side branches. Fruiting wood is best on horizontal to 45 degree limbs. Learn more...                                                             
 
Shipping Note:  Our fruit trees and berries are delivered to you bareroot during their winter dormancy from January through May depending on USDA zone. Trees are shipped with your invoice and helpful planting directions. There is no minimum quantity required but shipping rate for an individual tree is expensive since UPS/Fed Ex charge a dimensional weight and an additional handling fee to ship a tree. You'll find it's cost effective to consider a handful of trees,vines or our helpful Tree Starter Kits.
