King Apple Tree
Originated from the United States, the king apple tree can produce fruits having yellow skin apples with white dots on it. The tree can grow up to 15 meters in height and it prefers cold climates with a high moist area. The flesh of the fruit taste crisp and the color are yellow. Its green foliage will appear in warm season and the leaves will turn to brown in autumn.
Like other fruits trees, you need to do some fertilization for the king apple trees in your yard. You’d better do a thorough soil test before planting any fruit trees in the garden. The PH value of the soil should match the requirement of the apple tree. If your fruit tree have a poor condition during the growth, you should do some check on the soil to make sure that it is well-drained and nutrient-rich. You should avoid over fertilizing your plant simply because some other reasons like weeds, insects and weather can also cause the apples to be weak.
The location for planting king apple trees should have adequate sunlight during the day and a slight acidic soil to grow. The soil should be well-drained and rich in nutrients. The root ball of the tree should be put in a hole which is at least one foot deeper than the roots. When filling the soil into the hole, some compost should be added in a layer of the soil underground.
Remember to provide adequate water for the new tree once planted. Some mulch should be applied on the root area with a layer of at least 3 inches to suppress growth of weeds. In winter or early spring, some pruning work should be done. You just need to remove the fast-growing branches and ill branches. The pruning work enables the apples from the tree to improve the size and quality of the fruits.
