Scientific name: Malus ‘Liberty’
The ‘Liberty’ apple is a small, deciduous tree with a moderate growth rate and rounded form. This tree grows up to a height of 30-35 ft and a width of 20 ft. White flowers appear in spring. This tree is an early heavy bearer. Small to medium-sized fruit have red skin. Apples are high-quality for eating and cooking, with crisp, juicy, sprightly flesh. ‘Liberty’ requires a nearby pollinator of another apple or crabapple tree. This tree attracts birds, hummingbirds, and butterflies. ‘Liberty’ is noted for being scab free, highly disease resistant, and tolerant of air pollution. An excellent accent tree for a sunny spot in the yard, this tree needs full sun. Grows in plant hardiness zones 4-8.
