Plant Type: Hostas

The State Fair Apple, Malus 'State Fair', has a flavor that is sprightly tart and good for eating and baking. It has good texture that is semi-acid to sweet. State Fair is especially recommended for trial in regions where winter hardiness and a short growing season are limiting factors, so it is one of the better early apples for northern growers. This all purpose apple is one of the better early apples, but it has a short storage life. This medium size tree is a good producer, and its fruit ripens late September to early October. It is very cold hardy and needs a pollinator. Plant about a month after the first killing frost in the fall or about a month before the last killing frost in the spring. Select a planting site that has good air, drainage, full sunlight and deep, well drained soil.
