Pollinator required to bear fruit

A heritage apple variety loved by northern fruit growers! 

The Wealthy Apple tree is an Antique variety that originates from Minnesota, circa 1860. This apple tree is a profuse mid-season bloomer with extended flowering that makes it a great pollinator for your other apple trees. Heavy blooms lead to a large crop of pale yellow, red-striped apples.  

The multi-purpose apples are crisp, fruity apples that make delicious applesauce, pies, apple butter, cider and more! 

Wealthy is a self-fertile apple tree that has a compact growing habit. With regular maintenance, you’ll have a reliable crop of delicious apples to look forward to in September.

  1. Edward Podpora

    Wealthy has survived its second winter doing OK here in Colorado

  2. Gary Barnick

    Arrived in good condition but died in the ground for no apparent reason

  3. Judy Peraino

    We had a Wealthy apple tree on our farm west central MN. As kids we would eat them before they got completely ripe. A nice small size. Besides their good taste, I remember polishing them to a beautiful deep red shine on my jeans. It is no longer there but there is a greening that is over a 100 years old in the orchard. The apple mom liked for pies and sauce was Dutchess.

  4. Sueann Ott

    This variety isn’t easy to find. Great for sauce, especially blended. Tree arrived healthy and grew well first season.

  5. Edna Morrison

    wealthy apples are the best to make apple sauce. trees are growing well.

  6. Curtis Cooper

    The tree looks good and healthy. As with all new plants it hasn’t grown much in one year.It will take several more years to produce apples. Write
