description for "Apples: Malus domestica 'Northpole'"

'Northpole', as its name suggests, combines Canadian hardiness with the rich taste of its parent 'McIntosh'. Bright red color, white flesh full of juice and satisfying apple aroma. A great partner with 'Golden Sentinel' columnar; they cross-pollinate each other. Will also pollinate with any other apple tree. 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. -- edited by dtd pbcouchman
