William’s Pride Apple Tree

William’s Pride apple is complex and sweet with notes of pear. Its flavor will give you pride, much as it gave its breeder,  Edwin B. Williams. It was developed by Purdue, Rutger, Illinois, and introduced in 1988. If you would like to take a bite out of crispy beautifully dark red apple in the summertime, then Williams’ Pride apple tree is for you! It matures in late summer, earlier than most apple trees, and has a spicy and very crisp taste. Moreover, Williams’ Pride apple tree is resistant to scab, cedar apple rust, and fireblight which will make your life much easier.

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.
