You're invited: Fruit & Nut pre-order pick up weekend will be April 27 & 28, 2024 (from 10-2pm)!
If you like Crispin and Goldrush, you’ll love the bright juicy sweetness of Heliodor! Another gem from the Czech Republic, Heliodor translates to ‘gift from the sun’ and is impressively resistant to Apple Scab and Powdery Mildew as well as delectable. These bright yellow fruit blush orange with the sun, their light yellow flesh melding sugar & tart with an incredible crunch. A fabulous storage apple, Heliodor’s flavor arrives 2 weeks after harvest and continues to build, storing up to 4 months in the cellar.
Our Organic Heliodor Dwarf Apple Trees are bareroot nursery stock, and are graded to a minimum of 30” tall when Fall-dug from the nursery.All of our Organic Semi-Dwarf Apple varieties are grafted onto semi-dwarf Geneva apple rootstocks, making them easier to pick, prune and maintain than standard sized trees. Proven to be cold hardy, as well as resistant to Fireblight, Phytophthora and replant disease, Geneva semi-dwarf rootstocks induce fruit bearing in just a few years. Keeping most Apple varieties to between 10 and 12 feet tall at maturity, our semi-dwarf Apple trees will usually require support from staking or trellising throughout their lifespan. The reduced tree size allows trees to be spaced 8 to 15 feet apart if planted in a row.
And Friends, several Fruition tree varieties & rootstocks are patented, including the rootstock that this variety is grafted onto — to learn more hop in here.
Heliodor needs another Apple variety nearby for Pollination! All of the Apples we offer are compatible pollination partners.
