Description

This esteemed American apple variety is named after Esopus, a settlement in Ulster County, New York, where it was discovered in the late 18th century.  The Esopus Spitzenburg apple is said to have been a preferred variety of Thomas Jefferson, who planted multiple trees of this type at Monticello.

The apple is fairly large, oblong and has yellow ground color and red overcolor.  The flesh is yellow firm crisp and juicy. 

Special Requirements:

  • This is NOT a fig variety, but a scion wood cutting from an apple tree meant to be granted onto apple root stock or another apple tree's branch
  • Requires another cross-pollinating apple species for fruiting.  Best matches with a tree which blooms in late Spring.
  • Suitable for growing in zones 4-7.

Cutting Handing:  Scionwood cuttings are sealed in plastic and stored refrigerated until shipped. 

Here is what you can expect:

  • Cuttings will be at least pencil thickness at the base.

  • Cuttings will be cut with sharp, IPA-cleansed pruning shears.

  • Cuttings will have the variety labeled.

About Me: Hi, my handle is DroneDaddy (because I like to fly drones), but my name is Mike. I am an amateur horticulturalist that likes to raise figs and other fruit trees as a hobby. I have been growing fruit trees for 15 years. I live and grow figs in Severna Park, MD in Zone 7b.
