When Is The Best Time To Plant Apple Trees

in the fall to give them enough winter chill?

Apple trees are very sensitive to temperature changes. If you plant them too early, they won’t be able to produce much fruit; if you wait until spring, they will bear too late to provide much of a harvest. The best time for planting is in the fall when temperatures aren’t expected to get any colder than 50 degrees F (10°C) or so; it’s fine if night temperatures go down into the 20s F (-7°C). It’s also good not only for apple production but for other types of fruiting plants as well: last year I planted an apricot tree and enjoyed some pretty prolific harvests from that tree all summer long!
