Cold hardy smaller fruit trees are perfect for today’s urban lots and unpredictable winters! The Hazen Apple Tree stays small and can be pruned smaller yet, but still fills itself with a large harvest of round dark red apples for all your cooking and baked dessert recipes! Sweet and mild this softer, yellow-fleshed apple is juicy and ready to harvest mid-season!
Baby pink buds and blossoms are sweetly scented and burst onto the mid-spring scene. These welcome flowers are a nectar and pollen resource for hungry bees and early emerging butterflies. The lush green summer foliage becomes a lovely foil for the dark red fruit and then takes on a yellow fall hue.
Edible Landscaping and smaller orchards reap the benefits of a smaller tree like this! Hazen forms a rounded silhouette and is a very useful ornamental fruit tree for dual-purpose gardening! It does require a pollinator, so its smaller size is beneficial especially when space for a second tree must be considered.
Planting and Application:Sweet, soft and juicy, this apple has a wide variety of uses in the kitchen, plus wonderful eaten fresh. Apple butter and pies, plus enough to give to your neighbors and friends who have no doubt also been watching your harvest as closely as you have! The spring blooms and great outline will be turning heads, so go ahead and make them jealous and plant it right in the front yard!
Hazen is a great addition to existing orchards and for shading a side yard or garden. Avoid planting over your driveway, walkways or seating areas, but shade garden beds, anchor planting beds or use as a flowering specimen tree!

Hazen Apple Tree Frequently Asked QuestionsWhen to Plant Hazen Apple TreesPlanting Bareroot trees as soon as you can dig a hole in spring and until hot weather, the earlier the better. Plant container Apple trees throughout the growing season with complete success – that is the benefit of container plants – to extend the planting season. Your County Agricultural Extension Office is a great resource for first and last frost dates in your area.
How to Plant Hazen Apple TreesDig a large hole only as deep as needed to accommodate the bareroot or container root ball, and twice as wide. Add Nature Hills Root Booster to speed root establishment. Remove the pot or bag and situate it into the hole so the top of the soil (soil line if bareroot), is level with the new location’s soil being careful not to plant too deep. Water in again very well and backfill with the same soil you dug up, tamping down gently to ensure there are no air pockets.
Top off with a 3-4 inch thick layer of Arborist mulch. Consider staking your tree to keep its trunk growing straight for the first year to ensure it stands tall against strong winds and drifting snow.
When to Prune Hazen Apple TreesTrim off any broken branches from delivery as soon as you take them out of the box. Prune and trim apple trees while dormant, in late winter or early spring, before you see new growth.
How to Prune Hazen Apple TreesDormant prune to:
Remove any double leaders or narrow crotch angles
Eliminate any crossing branches
Thin interior branching and leave the fruiting spurs and strong branches in place opening up the canopy
Branching at least 24-36 inches above the ground
Prune Apple trees in the summer to:
Control size and shape by reducing the length of longer new growth on vigorous trees
Remove water sprouts on the main trunk or older branches in the crown
Remove suckers at the base of the trunk
Thin fruit during heavy years on established trees
How to Care for Hazen Apple TreesGrowing an apple tree is easy when proper soil, good drainage, attention to moisture, and regular fertility are maintained. Once you’ve chosen an apple tree that works for your climate, in the size you need for your landscape, and its pollinator (if needed), then you’ve accomplished half the battle!
Apple trees do best in full sun and well-drained soil
Water your apple trees when it gets dry – especially during the fruit production stage, and drought periods to keep it stress-free
Use arborists’ wood chips to mulch over the roots of your apples and have your soil tested to see what your soil may be lacking before adding fertilizers
Maintenance pruning and shaping
Apple trees will tolerate a wide range of soils, so long as water and nutrients are not limited and the pH level is adequate.
How to Fertilize Hazen Apple TreesFor the first year, water alone is most important. It is always best to get a soil test to see what your soil is lacking before adding more fertilizers. Once established, a fertilizer routine may be beneficial. We do offer some excellent slow-release organic options, applied according to the package directions.
Fruit trees need more phosphate and it’s possible to apply too much nitrogen which affects the soil’s pH. Test soil acidity or alkalinity using a pH Tester.
Fertilize in spring when you first see new growth emerging.
Don’t overdo it
Phosphates are your friends
Pay attention to pH in areas with extremely high or low soil pH
Follow the directions

Harvest Times for Hazen Apple TreesHazens are typically ready to harvest in August.
Early-Season? Mid-Season? Late-Season? The terminology can be confusing for new apple tree growers. Weather, climate and your tree determine when it’s ripe.
For Apples:
Early-season is usually June-July
Mid-season can be August-September
Late-season can be from late September-November
The growing season consists of spring, summer, and fall, and varies with climate and weather. Areas with longer growing seasons in the warmer hardiness zones can greatly affect the harvest times for each particular apple variety grown in your area. Learn which growing zone you are in.
