THIS JONAGOLD APPLE IS QUITE HAPPY GROWING IN A TUB. I once planted an Espaliered fence with 52 apples and pears trained in the Belgian Fence design. We made cider, gave way bushels, Apples aplenty. Then we moved a few years ago and this is my only apple tree. The good news is that it bears large and delicious fruit, Got all of 6 apples last year, but they were dandies. A great bloom this year, hope the Mason Bees do their job to assure another crop. When this tree is mature it will be trained in the shape of a cylinder and go to the top of the wire and wood support. Try it, growing fruit in tubs is fun and rewarding.
