We talk a lot about apples in our blog posts; after all, apples are kind of what we’re all about! We love providing our local community (and visitors) with the best apples around, and we love hosting you when you come apple picking at our orchards! Between the apple recipes and inspiration, we like to share some interesting apple facts every once in a while. So if you’ve ever been to an apple orchard and wondered how many apples typically grow on a tree, you’re in luck. We’ll be discussing that very topic in this blog post.
How many apples grow on a tree?
According to planyourpatch.com, a mature standard apple tree will yield 500 lbs of apples, a Semi-Dwarf apple tree will yield 250 lbs, and a Dwarf apple tree will yield 40 to 100 lbs. There is an average of three apples in one pound, so, every season, a mature standard apple tree will yield roughly 1,500 apples, a Semi-Dwarf apple tree will yield roughly 750 apples, and a Dwarf apple tree will yield roughly 120 to 300 apples. That’s a lot of apples!
