Yates Apple Tree

Yates Apple Trees are relatively easy to care for and are well-suited to a variety of climates. They prefer full sun to partial shade and well-drained soil. Yates Apple Trees are also relatively drought tolerant once established.

To grow a Yates Apple Tree, start by choosing a sunny spot in your yard with well-drained soil. Dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball of the tree and just as deep. Place the tree in the hole and backfill with soil, tamping down gently to remove any air pockets. Water the tree well.

Yates Apple Trees should be fertilized once in the spring with a balanced fertilizer. They should also be watered regularly, especially during the first year after planting.

Yates Apple Trees typically begin bearing fruit after 3-5 years. To harvest Yates apples, simply pick them from the tree when they are ripe. Yates apples are ripe when they are red in color and easily come off the tree.

Here are some tips for caring for your Yates Apple Tree:

  • Water regularly, especially during the first year after planting.
  • Fertilize once in the spring with a balanced fertilizer.
  • Prune in early spring to remove any dead or damaged wood and to shape the tree as desired.
  • Mulch around the tree to help retain moisture and suppress weeds.

Yates Apple Trees are a beautiful and productive addition to any landscape. With proper care, they can provide you with fresh apples for many years to come.

Note: The plant is shipped in its pot, firmly secured with several layers of clear tape, thereby avoiding any shuffling and moving during transit. The plant reaches you with minimal damage very safe and secure. We have been shipping plants like this for several years (plants are sometimes shipped in smaller pots for safety and ease of shipping). Most plants go dormant in Fall and Winter and will lose most of their leaves looking dead and dry, this is   very normal. They will flush out in Spring.

We cannot ship certain plants and some sizes to California due to restrictions placed by the Department of Agriculture.

Please note that the plant will be shipped in its pot, securely fastened with multiple layers of clear tape to prevent any shifting or damage during transit. This ensures that the plant arrives to you with minimal damage, safely and securely. We have been employing this method for shipping plants for several years, occasionally using smaller pots for added safety and convenience during transit. It's important to understand that many plants enter a dormant state during the fall and winter months, resulting in the loss of most leaves and appearing dry or lifeless. This is a natural process, and come springtime, they will begin to regrow and thrive once again. Please be aware that due to regulations set by the Department of Agriculture, there are certain plants and sizes that we are unable to ship to California. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
