Description

Ein Shemer Apple Trees reach mature heights of between 15 and 25 feet, and widths of up to 20 feet. Plant them with at least 12 feet of space on all sides, in a spot that gets at least 6 hours or more of direct sunlight per day. Ein Shemer Apple Trees will still grow and produce blooms and fruit if they receive some periods of light shade in the morning or afternoon, but the more sun the better. They are somewhat tolerant of drought, but much prefer periodic slow deep watering.

Prune Ein Shemer Apple Trees in winter after leaves have fallen, but before new spring growth appears. In some warmer areas such as California, Texas, and Florida Ein Shemer Apple Trees can bloom as early as January. Once the tree blooms, pruning is not recommended until the following dormant period in winter. Cut branches to shape the tree into a funnels shape. Cut away dead wood and remove any low suckers or abnormally vigorous vertical growth.

Fruit & Harvesting

Ein Shemer Apple Trees produce fragrant white to pinkish-white blossoms in early spring and the apples start to become ripe in June and July. Ein Shemer Apples are yellow and sweet with a juicy but firm flesh that is good for both eating fresh and cooking. When the fruit color deepens slightly to a yellow-gold, begin harvesting a few and do a taste test. If the apples are sour, or the flesh is dry, then wait another few days and try again. Once you have picked and tasted a few good ones, you will be able to easily identify the ripest apples.

Ripe Ein Shemer Apples can be stored in a cool pantry or kitchen fruit bowl for 4 to 6 days. You can refrigerate freshly picked Ein Shemer Apples to extend their storage for up to 4 weeks. Canning prolongs apple shelf life, and properly canned Ein Shemer Apples can be safely stored in a cool cellar or pantry for up to a year or more. You can also use Ein Shemer Apples to make pies, cakes, jellies, jams, and all manner of baked goods

Advice

Apple trees such as the Ein Shemer Apple Tree create ideal habitat for nesting birds. These fruit trees also provide food for wildlife of all kinds from birds to deer and squirrels. Unfortunately this can be a source of frustration for many gardeners who spend time and money watering, pruning, fertilizing, and watching over their precious Ein Shemer Apple Trees. One solution is to fence out larger animals such as deer. Some gardeners in rural areas install deer feeders on property perimeters, to keep deer from seeking out more cultivated foods.

Perhaps the best defense against smaller animals such as squirrels and raccoons is to grow the most vigorous, healthy tree possible. Such trees grow a larger crop, and therefore the chances of the tree producing enough apples for both grower and wildlife becomes more realistic. Growing an apple tree outdoors almost always means donating a few to the local critters. However, a mature Ein Shemer Apple Tree with hundreds of apples usually provides more than enough for all.

FAQs

Can Ein Shemer Apple Trees really grow in hot climates?

Ein Shemer Apple Trees need fewer chill hours than other apples (only a hundred or so hours per year). As such they can grow as far south as USDA Zone 9.

Does the Ein Shemer Apple Tree need a pollinator?

Ein Shemer Apple Trees can make fruit as a single tree. You can always increase yields of an apple tree by growing two or more trees together for cross-pollination.

Can you grow an Ein Shemer Apple Tree in a pot?

Yes. In fact since Ein Shemer Apples have the unique ability to hold fruit on very small trees, a container grown specimen can be a great addition to any home limited on gardening space.

Can I move an Ein Shemer Apple Tree once it is planted?

Apple trees prefer to have their roots left undisturbed, so choosing the right spot to plant a new tree is important. If the tree is less than 2 years old, you can relocate it by digging a large root ball, and transferring it to the new spot quickly. However, this is not recommended, and doing so involves serious risk to the tree health.
