If you love sweet apples like Honey Crisp, you might want to try growing Candy Crisp apple trees. Never heard of Candy Crisp apples? The following article contains Candy Crisp apple info on how to grow Candy Crisp apples and about Candy Crisp apple care.

Candy Crisp Apple Info

As the name suggests, Candy Crisp apples are said to be as sweet as candy. They are a ‘golden’ apple with a pink blush and a shape very reminiscent of a red delicious apple. The trees bear large juicy fruit with a terrific crunchy texture that is said to be sweet but with more pear rather than apple overtones.

The tree is said to have been a chance seedling founded in the Hudson Valley area of New York State in a red delicious orchard, thus thought to be related. It was introduced to the market in 2005.

Candy Crisp apple trees are vigorous, upright growers. The fruit ripens in mid to late October and can be kept for up to four months when stored properly. This particular hybrid apple variety does need a pollinator to ensure fruit set. Candy Crisp will bear fruit within three years of planting.

How to Grow Candy Crisp Apples

Candy Crisp apple trees can be grown in USDA zones 4 through 7. Plant seedlings in the spring in well-draining soil that is rich in humus in an area with at least six hours (preferably more) of sun. Space additional Candy Crisp or suitable pollinators around 15 feet (4.5 m.) apart.

When growing Candy Crisp apples, prune the trees in late winter to early spring when they are still dormant.

Candy Crisp care also includes fertilization. Feed the tree with a 6-6-6 fertilizer in the early spring. Keep young trees consistently watered and as the tree matures, water once a week deeply.

Sampling of our customers reviews over the years.

I used Trees of Antiquity to start my orchard. I ordered apples, pears, plums, almonds, walnuts, raspberries, everything! While I was nervous when they arrived looking like sad sticks, every single plant I received survived and have been exceeding my expectations. On the first year I had little apples and walnuts on my trees, as well as plenty of raspberries. I will not be ordering from any other company from now on. 5 stars

We have purchased a variety of trees from TOA. Our experience has been consistently positive since we discovered this company three years ago. Specifically:
1) Neil has been extremely helpful in answering our questions and working with our concerns.
2) He has also been amazingly prompt in his response to our emails.
3) We feel we have been treated fairly in business transactions.
We appreciate this company's customer service!

I ordered 11 trees and all trees arrived in a perfect condition! After 2 weeks my trees already have a leaves! Trees of Antiquity provide amazing service and answered all question less then a 15 minutes! This is a defiantly the best company that I ever work with! Thank you very much!

I am absolutely thrilled with the outstanding condition and size of the 4 trees (3 apples and a nectarine) that I just received. I seriously had tears of joy. I only now wish I would've ordered 5 more! Last year I purchased several heirloom apple trees from another nursery. I waited anxiously until the thaw for my order to arrive. When my order was ready- I paid over $250 for 8 trees, only 2 of which were part of my order. They were 12" tall, though they said they'd be 4-5 feet. They were the crummiest, tiniest, shouldn't even qualify as whip status things I've ever seen. This is what I feared mail order tree nurseries would all be like for things other than commercial trees. Boy was I wrong. I just cannot get over how robust my trees are, and so healthy. Be proud of what you do- this is how smallholder's dreams come true:)

I received my first order and was very impressed by the quality of the trees, shipping material and communication. The roots were in great shape. The packaging was minimal but effective in keeping the trees safe. It is so nice to order from a company that is so earth friendly. The company is wonderful about emailing you a shipment notification with tracking.

The loganberries are starting to break bud shortly after planting. Thank you so much!

The 12 apple trees I purchased arrived in excellent shape, large with strong thick root stock. They have been flourishing here in Kansas, a sign of how tuff old time tested varieties can be.

During the buying process I had several questions that were promptly answered in a very educated and professional manner. Trees of Antiquity is my new go too vender for high quality fruit trees!

This year (spring 2016) is my second year ordering from Trees of Antiquity. I've ordered from many different nurseries over the years, and I've never gotten better specimens than what I get from Trees of Antiquity. They are my go-to place from now on. Currently in my yard I have 6 fig trees, 5 apple trees, 1 almond tree, 1 pear, 1 persimmon, and 1 pluot from TOA. They were all very healthy on arrival and vigorous when they broke dormancy. They were also generally larger than similarly described trees from elsewhere and shaped more to my liking. Every single one of the plants in my yard would be from TOA if they had carried the particular varieties I was looking for. I highly recommend this seller.

I do not have enough positive words to say about this company. I ordered a ton of stuff ($1000 worth) for a new mixed fruit home orchard I wanted to plant this spring in two orders. Neil combined the orders, gave me the appropriate level of bulk discount, remained in constant contact over about 6 months form the time I ordered until delivery, and worked with me to make sure that my trees arrived on a specific date when I would be on vacation at the property where the orchard was being planted. Seriously - Neil is a blessing. And everything was SUPER healthy and is growing like crazy.

What a wonderful place to buy organic trees! I ordered a Macintosh Apple, they mailed it immediately and I got it the following day! Neil was so responsive and a pleasure to do business with. It's not often I look forward to writing stellar reviews but this place is a gem! I can't recommend it enough. I will be buying all my trees from Trees of Antiquity in the future.

Trees do extremely well when transplanted. The varieties offered have flavor like you remember from the trees at Grandmother's house. Probably because they are the same kind?! Order is always correct. Top quality.

Beni Shogun Fuji

A crisp juicy & very sweet tasting fruit. One of the few Fuji varieties that will actually ripen in our cooler PNW summers. Beautiful red coloring, outstanding flavor & ripens almost a month before Fuji, in September. Available in Dwarf sizes (10’-12’). Needs a pollinator.
