Dwarf Fuji Apple Tree

R690.00

Our Fuji apple trees have been grafted onto dwarf M9 rootstock being very productive and will bear fruit 1 year after planting.

They can be planted very close together, which makes it ideal for an apple tree hedge, against a wall, espaliered or even just in containers.

It is essential to have another pollinator with them. Granny Smith apples are great pollinators for these dwarf trees, and temperatures below 7 degrees in winter are required.

Fuji apples have red and yellow skin. The texture is crisp and firm with a juicy, deliciously sweet flavour. The flowers are white blossoms in late September, as the fruit will ripen during the late summer (February/March).

Position

Fuji Apple trees should be planted in full sun, with 6 to 8 hours of sunshine, preferably on the south side of the property, for extra winter chilling. If growing your tree in containers, consider moving it outdoors during winter. Use at least a 50L container if not planting directly into the soil.

Size

 Due to the rootstock of this tree can grow up to 3 metres high with a width of 1 metre wide. This makes it an ideal tree for any garden.

Soil type

This tree will grow well in well-drained soil with a pH of between 5.8 and 7. The soil needs to be fertile and moisture retentive. Use a good potting soil and compost mix, leaving 10-15cm of roots.

Mulch

Apply a thick layer of mulch of about 7-8 centimetres around the tree’s base. This will help keep the soil moist.

Watering

 Ensure not to overwater your tree, especially if grown in a container. Watering once or twice a week will be sufficient. You might water more during the summer when fruit is on the tree, especially during prolonged dry periods.

Fertilizing

Fertilise using a nitrogen fertiliser and good compost. Use our slow-release nitrogen-rich all plant fertiliser. Apply 1 teaspoon every 4-5 months.

Pruning

This is usually done during winter when the tree is dormant. Prune the same as a full-size fruit tree, removing damaged or diseased branches and ones that grow to the tree’s centre.

Staking

Dwarf trees use rootstock with a very small root system as they will need support, especially during fruiting. Tying them to a stake to secure the rootstock is deemed necessary.

Pollination

Requires a pollinator such as Granny Smith.
