Apples & Oranges & How To Grow Them

The two most popular fruits to eat on the go- apples and oranges. So why not start growing them yourself?

Apples are a hardy and delicious fruit. With over 10,000 kinds of apples, you can choose from a wide range depending on what you like.

Apples can be used in so many ways, whether you like them fresh and crisp on the go, or turn them into a beautiful apple pie for dessert.

Apples grow best where it is cold. You don’t need a backyard to grow an apple tree, one can grow a dwarf apple tree (Pinkabelle and Ballerina apples) on their balcony, and can even be purchased bare-root or in a container.

The Pinkabelle dwarf apple tree produces full-sized Pink Lady apples on a compact tree of 2m high and 1m wide and can even grow in a large pot.

The dwarf apple trees still produce full-size fruit, but grow between half and two-thirds the size of normal apple trees. Therefore this will result in a tree around 2-4m as opposed to 6-8m for a normal tree in a backyard.

A container grown tree can be planted during the growing season, which is winter time. It must grow in a sunny spot, requiring around five to six hours of sunlight a day. They also need plenty of space and room to mature, so be sure your balcony allows space for this.
