Description

Latin
Malus domestica ‘Parkland’

Family
Rosaceae

Spacing
Semi-Dwarf: 3.6-4.6 m (12-15′)
Dwarf: 2.4-3 m (8-10′)

Depth
Dig the hole deep and wide enough so the root system has plenty of room. Plant to the same depth as it was in its container, with the graft union above the soil line.

Requirements
A location with full sun, good air circulation, well-drained loamy soil, pH 6-6.5.

Pests
Some of the common problems include cedar apple rust, codling moths, leafrollers, aphid infestations, apple scab, scale and fireblight. Commercial growers control these using standard sprays. In the home garden, adding calcium to the soil and treating with both antifungal oils and horticultural oils deter the spread of both diseases and insects.

Timing
Plant as early in the spring as possible.

Growing
Keep soil mulched, prune regularly.

Harvest
Late August

Season
Perennial
