Malus domestica
Apples are among the most diverse and widely adapted plants on the planet. Just to prove this point, consider ‘Anna’. It’s a low-chill variety, bred on a Kibbutz in Israel and capable of producing fruit as far north as Cairns. A ridiculously heavy bearer of big, oblong fruit, it flowers in August and is ripe for the picking in December, making it one of the earliest apples to crop. To make the most of its epic yields, make sure your ‘Anna’ tree is protected against fruit fly and plant another low-chill variety as a pollinating partner. ‘Dorsett Golden’ (from the Bahamas) is ideal.
