The Westfield apple tree is often called simply Seek-no-Further, but we offer a few other varieties that have been also named Seek-no-Further such as the Rambo, Yellow Bellflower and Red Winter Pearmain. We also offered the "Green" Seek-no-Further which further complicates this variety identification. The Westfield Seek-no-Further apples are round to conical, pale to dull red over pale green background.  Prominent spotting dots. The flesh is white, fine grained tender with a rich sweet flavor. This apple is best for fresh eating. Tree is moderately vigorous making it a nice addition to a garden.  Excellent late season treat. Please see below for further insight on our heirloom apple tree Westfield Seek-no-Further and discover additional consideration for selecting the appropriate fruit trees to buy for your home and small farm.

The trees diameter (caliper) is often 1/2  to 3/4 inch;  *As noted by University of California Scientists and other qualified professionals the most successful trees often have caliper from 1/2" to 5/8" and usually establish faster than smaller and larger planting stock.

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.
