Semi Dwarf Apple

Cortland apples
This cultivar has a spectacular profusion of fragrant, pure white flowers mid spring. They attract birds and pollinators. If the trees have been pruned correctly, by fall you can expect a heavy crop of yellow green apples. The apples are tender, tart and sweet. Perfect for eating, snacking, and using in salads. This grafted fruit tree cultivar grows to a height of about 12 to 15 feet.

Although this cultivar is self-fruitful, it will produce a better crop if cross pollinated with another variety with the same bloom period. Granny Smith, and Braeburn would work well.
