Columnar apples and other fruit trees

locust8(7)April 29, 2014

Hi, I've been looking for new varieties of columnar apples and keep seeing the same trees: Golden Sentinel, Northpole, Scarlet Sentinel, and the Stark Bros equivalents.

Anyone know of any really new developments in columnar apples and other fruit?

Also, for those that have grown the above mentioned varieties, which would you recommend in terms of overall appearance. At my local nursery I noticed that Northpole and Scarlet Sentinel's leaves were more stunted and crowded than Golden Sentinel. Thought that was interesting. I bought Golden Sentinel because I thought the leaves and overall shape were more pleasing. Would love to hear opinions from other people.
