Crunch-A-Bunch apples combine look, texture and flavor excellently. The golden skin is prettily blushed with pink. Ripe fruit is juicy and crisp, and the sweet-tart flavor has the slightest hint of pineapple. It's perfect for making cider and baking into desserts, too. They'll ripen in about mid-September, and if you don't eat them all right away, you can refrigerate them for up to 8 months. That means you can enjoy delicious homegrown apples, even in winter. This is part of the Reachables® line, so harvest time doesn't have to be a hassle. With a more modest height, the average person can harvest the majority of the apples without having to pull out the ladder. This apple tree is not self pollinating. However if you don't have room for another apple tree, a good pollinator is the crab apple tree. Crab apple trees are very common, so the chances of having a pollinator nearby are high.
