A column-shaped apple tree? That's the apple tree ‘Obelisk‘. This apple tree doesn't develop lateral branches, making it very suitable for a smaller garden. The fruit tree can also be planted in a large pot on a patio, roof terrace or balcony. Despite the fact that the self-pollinating ‘Obelisk‘ stays small, it does produce big apples.We supply the apple ‘Obelisk‘ tree as bare-root stock — just the bare branch and roots. The branch is freshly removed from the soil. This gives it additional strength, enabling it to branch out faster than it would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They grow better and they're more economical.The fruit tree blossoms in spring. That's when it reveals its lovely white-pink flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting. We prune the apple tree in winter, provided that it isn't frozen. The ‘Obelisk‘ grows in well-drained soil that we keep nice and moist. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth, which is why we plant the fruit tree in full or half sun.

The top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting.

An easy to grow apple tree, water regularly and don't let the root ball dry out. It is recommended to give it some fertilizer early in the year with low nitrogen (N) and high potassium (K).
