Shizuka Apple Tree


This Japanese-bred apple tree is known for its large, round apples with yellow-green skin and occasional red patches that make it a versatile and appealing variety. Shizuka apples are ideal for fresh eating, baking, and cider making, as they are naturally resistant to common apple diseases like apple scab, so pesticides are not needed.

General Tree Height/Caliper: Most of our fruit trees (apple, peach, apricot, plum, pear, nectarine, quince, and cherry) are grafted/budded and are 4-6' tall with a caliper/diameter of about 1/4-3/4". Most have more than 5' height and 1/2" diameter. The other trees are seedlings, such as pawpaw, mulberry, persimmon, shade, berry, and flowering trees which range from 18-36" tall.

A rootstock primarily controls a tree's size and how early it bears fruit. Learn more about our specific rootstocks.
