Most varieties of apple trees require a hard freeze, which comes in areas that have a distinct change of seasons. In late fall and winter, apple trees are dormant.
The majority of apple trees require at least 500 chill hours to remain alive and thrive. Apples usually ripen and are ready to be picked in the late summer or early fall (Labor Day).
