Arkansas Black is a heritage apple variety that has been known since 1870. It is very disease resistant, and ripens very late, in November and December. This makes it an excellent food for deer and game. Its medium sized fruit has yellow skin that turns deep red to black, and keeps well in storage or on the tree. Chill hours 800. Ripens November.


  • Planting fruit trees is one of the best things you can do on your homestead.


They take minimal care once they get established and will produce year after year. Even if you have a very small space you can still plant dwarf trees or grow espaliered trees in pots. If you have more space, fruit trees can become integral parts of a productive food forest. No matter who you are, you need to plant fruit trees!


After your fruit tree and any other plants have been planted, make sure to add mulch around it.  Don’t pile the mulch up close to the trunk.  Instead, spread the mulch all the way to the drip line of the tree.  This will kill grass and break down and provide nutrients to your new fruit tree.
