The Gravenstein apple tree is an antique variety that originated from Denmark in the late 1700s. A longtime favorite of fruit growers, this tree is prized for its delicious fruit. These apples have excellent eating qualities. Delicious when eaten fresh or made into a sauce – the fruit holds its shape when baked.
Gravenstein is a relatively hardy variety and can withstand difficult conditions. This fruit tree grows fast with vigor and makes an excellent shade tree or landscape accent. While it has been popular with gardeners and homesteaders, Gravenstein is also still grown on a commercial level.
Look forward to homegrown apples that ripen in September!
Note: Gravenstein is a Triploid apple tree and cannot pollinate other apple trees.
