When planting your Honeycrisp Apple tree be sure to choose the right location and conditions for your new tree to thrive. Spring and Fall are ideal times to plant. However, if you avoid freezing temperatures and extreme heat you can plant your Apple tree almost any time of the year. Apple trees thrive in full sun and well drained soil. Water deeply when planting and twice weekly for 3 months while your tree is establishing. For the first year, we recommend watering deeply once weekly in spring and summer and once monthly in fall in winter after the establishment period. After the first year you will only need to water during dry spells. Adding a layer of 2 to 3 inches of mulch is recommended especially with newly planted trees. Do not allow the mulch to touch the trunk as this increases the chances of pests and disease. Fertilize in early spring and when planting to give your tree a boost. Choose a slow release fertilizer. When planting take care not to burn the roots by mixing the fertilizer into the soil before placing your tree in the hole. Prune your Apple in late winter to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches. The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the appropriate care for your plants. Proper location choice, watering, and fertilization are the keys to your success. Scale, Aphids, Mites, and Apple Maggots are insects that can affect Apple trees. You can treat the scale, mites, and aphids naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Apple Maggot can be treated simply with traps you can purchase at any garden center. Apple trees can encounter fungal issues. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. It can be effective, but the entire tree must be coated in order for this method to be effective.
Apple trees are lovely in the landscape. Use them like you would any other flowering tree! They offer an attractive look, blooms, AND a healthy snack! Use as a specimen or focal tree in your yard, garden, or even a large mixed bed. Apple trees look gorgeous lining a long driveway or on either side of a short one. Plant your Honeycrisp apple tree at least 15 feet from other trees or your home to give it plenty of space to thrive.
