One of the most popular fruit trees to grow, apple trees are easy to fit into the home orchard, edible landscape—and even a large container. Farmer Seed and Nursery offers a wide selection of apple trees for sale. Apple trees require at least six hours of direct sunlight daily. When selecting an apple tree variety to grow, first make sure it will grow in your hardiness zone or grow zone. Next consider your space. Standard-sized apple trees produce the most apples, but also take up the most space. Dwarf apple tree varieties are easier to manage and take up less space than standard apple varieties. Apple trees for container growing take up the least space. Another consideration is how you plan to use your apples. Some apples are better for baking. Some keep well in storage for months. Some are excellent for fresh eating.
