|Here our tree is shown one year after planting on February 22, 2014. There has been almost no growth from the previous year despite frequent watering.|
|Here is the Double Delicious Apple tree on April 27, 2014 after the Waterboxx has been placed. The Waterboxx will slowly and consistently release water to the roots of the tree, helping it to grow.|
Most trees' growth occurs in the early spring, as was the case with our apple tree as soon as we placed the Waterboxx. Below you can see less than one months growth of the canopy with the consistent water and base temperature provided by the Waterboxx.
|Here you see the same tree on May 18, 2014, with less than a month of the Waterboxx in place. The canopy has increased significantly.|
Waterboxx! This variety of grafted apple tree is self fertile, meaning it has two fruiting varieties grafted onto one tree so bees can pollinate without other apple trees nearby. Also, it is a semi-dwarf, meaning it will only get 12-15 feet tall and 12-15 feet wide, meaning it can be picked by hand or with a short ladder and will fit in most suburban yards. You can see that it already has little apples as shown below.
|A close up of our apples growing on May 19, 2015. We will expect to harvest these full size apples in late August or September.|
