This apple is a hybrid cross (‘Malinda’ x ‘Wealthy’) that was developed in 1923 from the University of Minnesota fruit breeding farm and named after the Superintendent, Charles Haralson. A natural semi-dwarf tree that produces medium sized red fruit. Hard, crisp and tart fruit makes it an excellent choice for eating out of hand or for baking. Often bears fruit the first year, then every other year. The fruit will maintain its quality till March! Needs another apple tree or crabapple tree for pollination.

Throughout this site, the following are used as guidelines for watering established plants:

water_drops_icon  These truly xeric plants can live with our 12 inches of natural annual precipitation and only need a winter watering during a multi-year drought, but they will thrive with a monthly watering. Overwatering will kill some of these.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants are adapted to intermittent deep watering with soil drying to a depth of a few inches between waterings. Watering frequency may be every couple of weeks during the active growing season and maybe only one winter watering for optimal care.
water_drops_iconwater_drops_iconwater_drops_icon  These plants need regular watering somewhat like a bluegrass lawn so that they never dry to depth in the root system during the active growing season, and need occasional winter watering to prevent root dessication and resultant plant death.

About sizes of our plants:

Sizes indicated with a # are roughly the equivalent in gallonage; so a #2 is about a 2 gallon pot size; b&b stands for balled and burlapped.
