Wealthy Apple Tree

The Wealthy Apple tree, introduced in the mid-19th century by Peter Gideon in Minnesota, is celebrated for its medium to large, sweet sub-acid fruits with distinctive yellow and reddish skin, suitable for fresh eating, sauces, and baking, yet it requires medium care due to susceptibility to common diseases. Flourishing in hardiness zones 4 through 8 and capable of cross-pollination with Flowering Groups 2, 3, and 4, its legacy persists in its contribution to agricultural biodiversity and as a favored heirloom variety among apple enthusiasts.

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.
