More about Apple trees for the south-eastern states

These are apple varieties that like a hot summer and a long warm fall to ripen. Many of them have a low-chill requirement, which means they will fruit reliably even in areas where winter temperatures rarely fall near to freezing.

Note that fireblight, an important disease of apple and pear trees, is prevalent in many of the south-eastern states. If it is in your area then we recommend you choose fireblight-resistant varieties and fireblight-resistant rootstocks.
