Apple

Introduction

Apple is a temperate fruit that is primarily consumed fresh, with a small percentage of production being used for canned and other processed products. Apple is the fourth-most produced fruit globally.

Care

Apples can be cultivated with several different methods: grafting, budding, or on rootstocks. When planting, trees should be spaced in such a way to ensure sufficient pollinators; ideally there should be one pollinator tree for every 2-3 large trees. Apples are sensitive to low moisture, so regular rainfall is best for growth. Regular pruning is crucial for plant vitality and productivity. Thinning fruits (to about one fruit per 40 leaves) is also important for optimal fruit size and quality.

Soil

Loamy, well-drained soils with a pH of 5.5-6.5 are best for apple propagation. Soils should not be water-logged or have compacted subsoil. Mulch mixed with organic material can help to retain soil moisture.

Climate

Apple is a temperate crop that thrives in temperatures between 21 and 24C. They can also be grown in higher altitudes (1500-2700m above sea level). Rainfall that is evenly distributed throughout the growing season is best for apple growth. Windy conditions are harmful to apple trees. Dry, sunny conditions help to produce fruits that have high sugar content and a longer shelf life.
