Hoople's Antique Gold apple tree was lost for several years in our nursery. We're thrilled to have the Hoople's Antique Gold apple back in our orchard. The antique in this case refers to the gold coloration with russeting, not the age of the variety. Originally discovered on a limb of a Golden Delicious on the Hoople's Fruit Farm in Ohio. Some stripes against a yellow background., sometimes russeted. Hoople's Antique Gold apple is a medium to large fruit. Rich, lightly aromatic flavor, juicy sweet and resistant to fireblight. Often one of the top rated apples at many apple tastings in California. Please see below for further information on our organically grown Hoople's Antique Gold apple trees for sale.

Size of tree
Our trees range in height from 4-8 ft. in our field and trimmed to 4 to 5 ft. when shipped. Our young two year trees are most often feathered (side limbs). 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.
