Apples

Did you know that apples are the most widely adapted deciduous fruit tree in the United States? They need full sun for optimal development and typically will not grow in the tropical south because there are not enough chilling hours to satisfy the requirements of the plant.  Hardy from zones 4-8, apples have a high wind tolerance and prefer a well-drained soil. Use apple trees as mass plants, shade plants or even as specimen plants.
