Apple trees require some winter chill in order to produce fruit, but there are three cultivars that should do well in your gardening region. 'Pettingill' is a mid-to late season apple, which is large, red-blushed green to full red, with firm, white flesh. 'Winter Banana' also has a low winter chill requirement and produces large, pale yellow, pink blushed fruit. 'Winter Pearmain' produces medium to large pale greenish to yellowish apple with tender fine-grained flesh. To insure pollination, grow two apple trees in your yard.
