Enjoy an abundant apple harvest with the Scarlet Sentinel Columnar Apple Tree or Malus domestica 'Scarlet Sentinel’. The tall and thin columnar growth makes this apple tree an excellent option for a small space. White flower clusters bloom in the spring and have a sweet fragrance. Fruit grows directly from the trunk, allowing for easy picking and a unique appearance. A red blush forms on the greenish-yellow apples in mid-to-late September when the sweet and juicy fruit is ready to harvest. The versatile apples are good for eating, baking, and cooking.

Scarlet Sentinel Columnar Apple Tree Care  

Space trees as close as 3 feet apart when creating a dense planting. Plant the Scarlet Sentinel Columnar Apple Tree in full sun because this tree needs at least 6 hours of daily sunlight. The soil should be rich, slightly acidic, and well drained. 

Remove damaged growth as necessary. Prune the tree to remove double leaders or crossed branches during the late winter or early spring when it is dormant.

Growing Scarlet Sentinel Columnar Apple Tree 

The Scarlet Sentinel Columnar apple tree needs 3 to 5 years to bear fruit. Plant this tree alongside the Golden Sentinel Columnar Apple to encourage cross-pollination. Mature Scarlet Sentinel Columnar apple trees stand 10 to 12 feet tall and 2 to 3 feet wide. 

The space-saving growth habit of this dwarf apple tree is a good fit for a container. Use an 18-inch wide container that has drainage for this apple tree.

Watering Scarlet Sentinel Columnar Apple Tree 

Water the tree when the top layer of the soil is dry. Keeping the tree well watered during the spring and summer will protect the fruit and ensure a bountiful harvest.

Feeding Scarlet Sentinel Columnar Apple Tree 

Fertilize the Scarlet Sentinel Columnar apple tree in the spring using a slow-release plant food high in phosphate. Advanced gardeners may want to test the soil’s pH and adjust the fertilizer accordingly.
