Discover the Paradise Apple Tree (Malus pumila), a captivating deciduous heirloom that flourishes into a magnificent display of white and soft pink blossoms each spring. This tree, adaptable through rootstock selection and pruning, can reach heights of up to 30 feet in the wild, with a more common range of 6 to 15 feet when cultivated. Its dark green, serrated leaves frame the stunning blooms, leading to a late summer or autumn harvest of apples. These fruits showcase a variety of colors from red to russet, some with bi- or tri-colored skins, surrounding the lush, typically pale yellowish-white flesh. A true garden gem, the Paradise Apple Tree not only offers visual appeal with its seasonal transformations but also provides a bounty of flavorful fruits. Each seed promises the potential for a unique apple variety, making it a delightful addition to any garden or orchard.

Soak seeds in hot water and let stand in water for 24 hours. Seeds that float will be viable. Next, cold stratify seeds for 60-120 days. The longer the stratification, the greater the odds of breaking the dormancy. After the seed prep, sow the seeds 1/4" deep and tamp down. Full sun. Keep moist, but not saturated.
