Product Description
Hands down the best apple for fresh eating! Pixie Crunch's unsurpassed sweetness, juiciness and crisp texture make it the go-to choice for baking and cooking recipes. This taste-test winner is a favorite with kids. Many choose it over candy and sweets. The apples are tender when cooked and are so sweet they can be used in no-sugar pie recipes. Now available as a Reachables® Tree, Pixie Crunch is easier than Honeycrisp to grow and can withstand late frost better than other varieties. The 6-8 feet tall trees can be planted in the garden, orchard, even in a pot and are easier to manage than full-sized trees—one person can prune, spray, net and harvest the tree all without the use of a ladder! Please note: Since Reachables produce full-sized fruit on smaller trees, they require a tree support. Pixie Crunch ripens in late August. Zones 5-8. PP13871.

Reachables® Deluxe - Deluxe fruit trees include 2 oz. Fruit-Boost Pelletized Calcium to enhance fruit quality, 12 oz. bag of Fruit Tree Food Starter Formula, easy-to-use tree ties, a premium tree guard to protect the trunk from gnawing pests, mowers and weed trimmers, and a copy of Backyard Horticulture for Fun and Profit—How to Make $10,000 in Your Spare Time.
