Apple Varieties

PF 21 blossoms, baby Trailman apples

All the apple varieties listed here (click the three horizontal bars icon at the top left of this page) grow in orchards around Fairbanks. They are known to survive the winters and fruit here regularly. Generally the apple-crabs need a shorter growing season than the larger apples and will have a greater chance of ripening at lower elevations. Each page contains the parentage, descriptions of varying detail and photographs where I have them.

This pair of photos taken June 15, 2017 illustrate the different timing of blooming and fruiting among apple varieties. The tree on the left is PF21, the tree on the right is Trailman.
