Ingrid Marie apple trees comes to us from a schoolyard on the Island of Funen, Denmark in about 1910. The Ingrid Marie apple tree is a seedling of the Cox's Orange Pippin and parent of Elstar. The Ingrid Marie has a dark red flush, some stripes, against a yellow background, sometimes russeted. The fruit is medium to large with juicy flesh and a rich, lightly aromatic flavor.

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...
