Hat Trick Espalier Apple is a grafted tree in espalier form. This tree is shaped into a 3-tier cordon form. The bottom cordon is the variety Honeycrisp. The middle cordon is the variety Sweet 16. The top cordon is the variety Zestar!®. Being espalier, this tree takes little space width-wise, yet it bears three different types of apples that all ripen in September. A whole month of fresh fruit! Zestar!® will ripen early September, Honeycrisp ripens mid-September and Sweet 16 ripens late-September.
