How to Grow and Care for North Pole Columnar Apple Tree

North Pole Columnar Apple Tree (Malus ‘North Pole’) Growing Requirements

Hardiness zone 4-8 outdoors
Harvest time September

Sun exposure

North Pole Columnar Apples thrive in full sun, so make sure you plant them in a spot that receives at least 6 hours of direct sunlight each day.


Follow label instructions on an apple-specific fertilizer, usually applying several times from April until August.


Select an area with full sun (6 to 8 hours) and well-drained soil.

Then, select a pot that’s about twice the width of your plant’s shipped container. Select a well-draining, quality potting soil mix to fill the pot. Add soil to the bottom of the pot, place your tree, and fill the pot until there is about a 2-inch space from the rim to the top of the soil.


Water slowly when you irrigate the tree to ensure even moisturizing of the soil. When the tree is in a dormant state, only provide enough water to keep the soil slightly moistened. As soon as you see newer growth coming out of the tree, you can water whenever the top 2 inches of the soil feels dry.


Once you have your tree potted and comfortable, prune the branches back at a 45-degree angle with a pair of clean shears.
