Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Wolf River is more resistant to scab, mildew and fire blight than most. It is a very vigorous tree and a little "rangy". Don't worry about thinning it too much, because even heavily cropped the apples are larger than most varieties.

A Little History about Wolf River Apple

Wolf River got its name naturally from the place it was found--- on the banks of the Wolf River near Fremont, Wisconsin in 1875. This was one of Grandpa's favorites as a child, because it was sooooo big! He always said they were very tasty, but rather dry eating fresh, but when Grandma baked them, then mmm...mmm!
