I read about your 'vertical' apple trees (apple trees that grew to about 3' wide) in the Sunset guide, but can't find them on your web site -- have you stopped growing them?

Columnar apple trees are available from Raintree Nursery (online at but they won't produce well in your mild winter climate. They're very popular trees for small spaces and I'll bet new varieties will eventually be available, including one or two with low-chill requirements, suitable for your southern California garden.
