Apple - Pippin - Cultivation
Pippin apple trees thrive in climates that have humid, warm summers and cold winters. The semi-dwarf, deciduous tree needs full sun and well-drained, loamy soil. Pippin apple trees require weekly watering when young and mulching twice a year to help keep the soil warm and moist. Pippin apple trees can be planted year-round, depending on the variety and the type of container grown in, but are commonly planted in the spring. It will take three years before the tree will bear fruit and the apples will ripen in the late fall.
