The Mountain Rose apple tree was  first recognized in the late 1950's in Airlie, Oregon.  The Mountain Rose apple trees produce lovely pink flesh apples that are often  sweet, crisp texture, rich flavor with a beautiful aroma.  The Mountain Rose apple is medium size, elongated with pink blush and yellow skin. Flesh varies from deep red to pink, splashed white.  While not as flavorful as Pink Pearl,  it is tart and pleasing. Please see below for further information on our organically grown Mountain Rose 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. 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.
