The Q&A Archives: colonnade apple trees

Question: I have 3 colonnade apple trees each a different variety. They are 3 years old. When do they start bearing fruit and what time of year do they bear fruit? I live in Zone 6. Thanks David Tucker.

Answer: Apple trees take about five to seven years to become well established and bear fruit. The trees bloom in the spring and the fruit is set as the flowers fade. The fruit grows and sizes up and ripens over the summer into the fall.
