Advantages and disadvantages of the variety

Consider the merits first.

  1. Due to the fact that the plant does not have large branches, apples that are located around the trunk receive an equally large amount of sunlight and heat. This allows you to accelerate the onset of fruiting and get poured ruddy apples. If you create conditions for constant watering, the productivity of the tree increases significantly. Thus, the work of the gardener will not be in vain.
  2. Given that the plant occupies a small area, you can plant a fairly large number of its copies. This is suitable for owners of small garden plots, as well as those who grow crops in the garden that need a significant amount of light.
  3. Harvesting is quick and easy. You no longer need to climb trees, breaking branches under you, in order to reach one or two apples. Now it is enough just to have a stool on hand, with which you can easily get to the tallest fruits.
  4. Caring for such a plant also does not take much effort and time.
  5. In addition to being easy to care for, long and painstaking pest control is also a thing of the past. No more spraying with pest control. The compactness of the plant simplifies the work and significantly reduces the amount of time for this.
  6. The taste of the fruit will pleasantly surprise you! Juicy, they scored 4.5 points out of 5 in terms of taste.
  7. In addition to its practical advantages, it can also be said that the tree looks very beautiful. It can be planted both in the garden, among other trees, and in the yard, where there will be constant access to apples.

Of course, the Prioksky apples have their disadvantages. For hobby gardeners, the purchase of seedlings can be painful for the pocket, since the price of these young trees is above average.

The root system is poorly developed, and even the one that is, is located near, near the surface of the earth. Therefore, with a strong gust of wind, the plant will tilt and fall along with the roots. In addition, the small area of ​​the roots does not allow it to absorb the required amount of nutrients from the soil.

Therefore, the seedling needs to be fertilized periodically.

The fruiting period is short. And given the fact that all the fruits are located only on the trunk, the harvest from one tree is not as much as we would like.


The peculiarity of columnar apple trees is that, with a small area of ​​the tree itself, the number of fruits is quite large. Until the seedling has matured, you should not load it with fruiting. First, the plant must be allowed to feed.

In the first year, flowers are usually removed, in the second year - 2-3 flowers are left, in the third - 10-15. If you notice that the size of the fruit has become smaller compared to the previous year, then the seedling was overloaded. In the sixth year, when the tree has become an adult, 6-7 kilograms of apples are harvested from it.
