It sometimes happens that we lose the name of our grafted apple trees. As we harvest many different varieties, we are unable to recognise which variety it is. Therefore, we have numerous "no name" varieties for sale at a discounted price. As we only graft quality varieties, it will produce quality fruit. But we cannot tell you what type it will be! It's a surprise! We cannot guarantee hardiness in colder areas than zone 4, even if it's probably hardier than that.

This particular set of surprise trees consists of a mixture of two varieties, Rang 4 and Goodland. So if you buy more than one tree, chances are you will end up with some of each: perfect for those interested in a variety of early apples!

Rang 4 was discovered in Sainte Julienne, in Lanaudière, in zone 4. It is our earliest apple, ready to harvest in July! It’s a true delight, especially when we have not eaten freshly-harvested apples in 10 months! Its flavour is agreeably mild, without a trace of sourness when it is harvested at the right time. More details here.

Goodland is hardy in zone 3, ready to harvest 2 to 3 weeks after Rang 4, but also considered an early apple. Its white flesh is fresh and juicy, with a fine texture, and is very good to eat fresh, but is also marvellous in compotes, being pleasantly aromatic. Contrary to Rang 4, it keeps quite well, (around 5 months in good conditions.) It is a variety that is almost 100 years old! More details here.
