Li’l BIG Apple Trees – An Easy Way to Grow Apples

Apple TreeThink little trees with big, full-size apples—that’s what you’ll get with our Li’l-BIG apple trees.

These special trees make it easy to grow fresh, delicious apples right in your own backyard, no matter the size of your growing space. The trees grow approximately six feet tall, and bear full-size, full-flavored fruit only 16 months after planting. By their third or fourth year, these easy-to-manage trees will bear half a bushel or more.

Many commercial growers now plant this type of tree because it offers more production per acre. No ladder needed to prune, spray or harvest, and no special care beyond what you’d give ordinary apples.

If you have limited space, or simply want a little tree with big benefits, Li’l BIG™ apple trees are for you. Their height makes pruning, spraying and harvesting easier than standard-size fruit trees.

Li’l BIG™ apple trees are grown on specific root stock that makes them resistant to fire blight, a devastating disease of fruit trees. With no threat of disease, the sweet, crisp, juicy flavor of our Pixie Crunch™ apple, or the exciting, pineapple-sweet lemon hybrid flavor of our Sundance™ apple, can make its way into pies and baked goods harvest after harvest.
