Anna apples are delicious! They are crisp and are a golden delicious style apple. They grow quickly and are perfect for warmer climates.

Bonus: The tree is gorgeous in bloom with a rose colored flower.

According to Minnetonka Orchards, https://minnetonkaorchards.com/anna-apples/ Anna Apples are:

Sweet, crunchy, and semi-acidic, Annas are a delicious addition to your fruit tree orchard. The fruit is large with a soft rosy red blush against a yellow-green skin. Their firm juicy flesh is a beautiful creamy white and presents a mild, sweet-tart flavor.

These all purpose, crisp flavorful apples are perfect eaten raw, baked, or cooked. They work well in both sweet and savory preparations. The fruit trees produce a heavy crop with a very early season, bearing apples in June and July. As a precocious, semi dwarf variety, the Anna apple tree will bloom early and produce a copious crop.


Another great variety for Arizona is the Beverly Hills Apple.

According to Harvest to Home:

The Beverly Hills Apple is a white medium size fruit with pale yellow skin covered by a red blush. The flavor is sweet, slightly tart and is a long-time favorite in Southern California. A mature size tree ranges between 10 and 20 feet tall and has fragrant white blossoms that line the branches beginning in mid Spring. It is similar to the McIntosh Apples and is great for eating fresh, baking and using in sauces.



According to Plantmegreen.com:

The Ein Shemer Apple tree produces a pale yellow, medium-sized apple. The apple’s sweet, semi-acidic taste is perfect for eating right off the tree or for making into applesauce. The apples ripen in June and July and can be kept for two weeks when refrigerated. The Ein Shemer Apple Tree is perfect for Gulf Coast planting, and pollinates well with Anna & Dorsett Gold Apples. It requires 350 chill hours. For planting, apple trees prefer full sun and slightly acidic soil. At maturity, the Ein Shemer apple can reach a height and width of 12-15 feet.

Kids love applesauce; Adults love applesauce; the Law Badgers love applesauce! Thank you Ein Shemer Apple for being perfect for it!



According to plantingjustice.org:

Gordon Apple (Malus pumila) is a variety that is available as a bare root tree on semi-dwarf rootstock.  Medium to large round apples have a green skin overlaid with bright red.  Firm, crisp, fine textured, juicy, sweet-tart, great flavored white flesh has a great aroma and is good for eating fresh, baking, and cooking.  Very heavy production occurs in areas with a mild winter.


You know what state has a mild winter? Hint: Arizona.



The golden dorsett apple is perfect for warmer climates. In fact, it can grow year round depending on the temperature.

According to orangepippin.com:

The apples ripen late June / early July in southern California.  Like most early season varieties the apples do not keep, however the flesh is lightly crisp and with a good flavor – far better than might be expected from an early season hot climate apple.  Flavor is apparently better in apples which are slightly shaded (the reverse of what is normally recommended for cool climate apples).




Here is an old, and VERY simple, recipe for an apple crisp that will warm you up as the weather cools down.


  • 4 medium to large apples, sliced
  • 1 cup uncooked oats
  • ¾ cup of brown sugar
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/3 cup melted butter

Preheat oven to 375. Grease an 8 x 8 inch baking pan. Spread the apple slices in the pan. In a large bowl, put all the remaining ingredients. Stir until it forms a crumble. Spread over the apples. Bake for about 30 minutes.
