description for "Apples: Malus domestica 'Golden Sentinel'"

'Golden Sentinel' combines the best characteristics of 'Golden Delicious' with an extra crisp and juicy texture. They are brim full of apple juice. Fruits ripen in early to mid September in most areas. Pink buds open to large white blossoms, then come the bright, golden apples clustered on the tree's single stem! These trees can be grown in any reasonably sunny location whether in the garden, an orchard, raised beds, or in planters. They stop growing at about 8 feet in height. Can be pruned shorter. Apples are full size, ripening in most areas in September. Will often yield fruits the first year after planting. Any other apple tree will pollinate them. If you would like to pollinate with another single stem apple tree, try the 'Northpole' columnar apple. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
