Hazen Apple Tree (Malus ‘Hazen’)

Hazen Apple Tree

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!
