Sweeter than Honeycrisps; imagine apples so crisp and juicy, fresh from your own garden, that children choose them over candy and sweets. You'll love them too, and nothing beats biting into a fresh fruit that you've grown yourself. No room for apple trees? This petite tree (to 6-8') has been grafted on stock to maintain its small size, but that doesn't affect its yield. This apple "explodes" with a breaking crispness, tantalizing your taste buds with mouthwatering flavor and juiciness. Delectable sweetness works beautifully in no-sugar pie recipes and baked goods—cooks up tender every time. As if being tops in taste were not enough, Pixie also bears reliable annual crops starting in its second or third year, handling late frosts much better than other varieties. Apple trees are ornamental too, with white blossoms that herald spring and attract bees and other pollinators. The fruit matures in late August, and you'll be glad you thought ahead. Malus domestica "Pixie Crunch™" PP13871
