|What apple trees could be planted in zone 5A? Elevation is 7200' but yard has wind protection and sunny. I notice old apple trees in some older homes sites still producing.|
|According to Colorado State University, the best apple cultivars for your region include:
Cox Orange. Aromatic dessert apple. Yellow flesh.
Red Delicious. A good winter apple and very resistant to fire blight.
Golden Delicious. A fall apple of good flavor that bears sooner than most varieties. Also a good variety to plant with other apple trees to ensure good pollination.
McIntosh. An all-purpose red apple.
Johnathan. A popular apple but fairly susceptible to fire blight.
Fameuse. Old variety similar to McIntosh.
Best wishes with your new apple trees!
