Sundance Apple Tree

Sundance Apple Tree

Crisp & Delicious With Hints of Pineapple

Large fruit has porcelain to yellowish-green skin, often with a red blush and creamy white flesh. Delightful popping-crisp texture is ideal for fresh eating and pies— it holds the texture and bakes up perfectly— not too hard and never gets mushy. Exceptional sweet-tart flavor; sugary with refreshing hints of pineapple and lemon. Matures mid to late October, but hangs on the tree up to a month without loss of quality. Stores for up to 4 months in refrigerator— so you can enjoy them into winter! Excellent resistance to scab and cedar apple rust. Zones 5-8. U.S. Patent No. 13819.

95% Dead... Sort of...

Avid Gardener here... weird one this is...Planted the tree (tree was much smaller than other nursery's selling apple trees which wasn't cool.. Was not even as big as Henry Fields said it would be..Whatever.. planted it anyway) First year of planting.. all went well. No issues... No bugs attacked it... No sign of disease.. nothing. Everything was good. Second year.. Entire top half of tree is dead coming out of winter. Only 1 little branch from the base of the tree is alive (this branch is half the size of a pencil... its long but REALLY thin) no idea what went wrong or why. I am guessing... and this is only a guess.. these trees are grafted.. and the root stock is one strain and the top is the sundance strain... (common practice in fruit trees) Well the top part is dead. Gave it a year to see if it would come back... nope. Completely dead. So, now I am left with a twig growing from the base to grow into a tree... in... what... maybe 20 years?? Not worth it in my opinion.. Probably going to rip it out and plant something else. A real shame as I was looking forward to this tree.

I grew this beloved dwarf apple in Nashville TN for many years. Sundance apple dishes were the hit of church pot lucks there. I moved to Colorado, and found myself missing my little tree. Planted a new one this past May. Amazingly, it produced 3 full size apples several months later! Didn't even have to wait a year! This tree is very disease resistant, and easy to grow. Due to its' yellow coloring, the birds don't peck them as much as my red apples. The flesh is crisp, and the sweet lemon flavor is exceptional. It is a tip bearer, so limbs need to be supported when heavy with fruit. Probably its' only drawback. Highly recommend!
