Columnar Apple Trees As A Self-Sufficiency Survivalist Crop

Maybe I'm way behind the times, but I had never heard of these little wonders until recently and now I can't seem to get my mind off of them. According to the description and the information I was able to find elsewhere online, they typically grow to a height of 8-10 feet and never branch-out, thereby maintaining their slim look. They are typically about 2 feet wide. They are hardy trees as well as early producers and the fruit is full-sized which was a concern I had. Generally, they will produce fruit for around 20 years!

The site linked below is selling them as a pair in order to ensure proper pollination.

All comments on this blog are moderated, meaning they don't appear until approved by me. So, when your comment doesn't appear immediately, *DO NOT* throw a hissy-fit and assume I'm refusing negative comments (yes, it really happened). I approve pretty much everything that isn't obvious SPAM, negative or not, and I promise you that will include your hissy-fit comments, accusing me of a grand conspiracy to squash dissenting ideas (also really happened). The result, of course, being that you will look like a fool, and the rest of us will laugh heartily at your stupidity.
