    3 responses

au0rey starts with ...
Hi all, I am looking at buying an apple tree for my garden. As the garden is not big, I do not have many options. i want to get an apple tree which as the title says has the best nutrients. I am not sure if all apple varieties are the same in terms of nutritional value. Would appreciate some input and suggestions before I decide. Thanks.

An exerpt from this website
"e;e;In order of antioxidant levels, the varieties ranked:
Red Delicious (2,012), Northern Spy (1,548), Ida Red (1,479), Cortland (1,323), Golden Delicious (1,265), McIntosh (1,163), Mutsu (1,017) and Empire (782). The numbers are measures of total phenolic content in parts per million."e;e;

so i would say, red delicious? but it needs a pollinator. Golden delicious is partially self fertile so you need 1 since you don't have a big yard. Hope this helps

You're overthinking it... the differences will be marginal, especially in the broader context of your overall diet.

Plant one you like to eat :)

A multigrafted tree that will spread the crop is better, and apples are super-easy to graft, even with improvised tools (and a bit of care).
