Joy Apple – Local Heirloom!
The Joy apple tree was found a little north of Tallahassee, the tree is healthy (without any maintenance!) and appears to be self-fertile, since there are no other apples in the area. Joy’s fruit is crispy, sweet and green blushed with yellow. It ripens in late June into July. We don’t know its story, but we do know it’s delicious. Great choice for an organic grower. Found growing in Zone 8B. Self-fertile. Estimated 500 chill hours.
