Deaderick apple trees were first grown on the farm of a Benjamin Ford in Washington Country, Tennessee in 1850. Originally named the Ozark Pippin apple, but in 1896, the apple was renamed to "Deaderick", presumably to avoid confusion with few other Ozark apples. Deaderick apples are large-sized apples. They are slightly oval, and can be uneven in shape, with occasional ribbing. They have bright green skin that ripens to yellow. The skin is smooth, bit tough with a pink blush and reddish-white spots in the blush area. The Deaderick apple flesh has yellowish, medium-fine textured, tender, juicy. Please see below for further information on our organically grown Deaderick apple trees for sale.

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.

You'll find it's cost effective to consider a handful of trees,vines or our helpful Tree Starter Kits.
