Tropical Apple trees are well suited to Townsville climate.
Anna -produces a sweet-tart, red or green apple early in the growing season. It is a self-pollinating tree, although it produces significantly more apples when it has a pollinator such as the Dorsett Golden.
Dorsett Golden apples are similar in taste to “Golden Delicious” apples, that produce sweet, yellow apples that ripen in mid-season.
