Pixie is a small, sweet apple that's produced in abundance even on small trees. To avoid too many tiny fruits, thin them in early summer. Pick your crop in mid-fall.
The Pixie Apples is said to be Sweeter than Honeycrisp and a hit with the kids...
This sweet beauty is absolutely unparalleled for fresh eating. One bite and you will agree this apple "explodes" with a breaking crispness, tantalizing your taste buds with mouthwatering flavor and juiciness. Delectable sweetness works wonders in no-sugar pie recipes and baked goods; cooks up tender every time. A favorite apple with children because of its flavor. Kids have been known to choose this over candy and sweets! As if being tops in taste were not enough, Pixie apples also bears reliable annual crops starting in its third year for standard trees and often in its second for Li'l-BIGs, handling late frosts much better than other varieties. Matures late August...
