Northern Spy Apple Tree
Certified Organic Seed
An heirloom favorite.
Introduced in the 1840s, and still a favorite today! A mottled red and green, hardy, late season apple with a sweet and aromatic flavor and crisp, crunchy flesh. An excellent keeper, and great for a variety of uses.
These are two-year-old, bare-root trees from our farm partner, Full Circus Farm in Pine Plains, NY.
All of our apple trees are offered on M111 root stock. This root stock leads to "semi-dwarf" fruit tree size, which is typically 15-20 feet high. M111 is adaptable to many soil types, and has been known to perform better in dryer soils and climates than other varieties.
At this time, all of our bare-root fruit trees are offered for local pick up only, at our Accord, NY location.

Choose a site in full sun, with relatively well-drained soil. Plant your tree as soon as possible after pick up, and soak the roots in water a few hours before planting. Dig a hole that will accommodate the roots when they are spread out, plus a little extra room. When planting, keep the tree perpendicular to the ground, and keep the graft a few inches above the soil. Spread the roots out and gently fill in with soil all around. Tamp the soil down and water in very well. Keep well-watered and mulched while young trees are getting established.
