Malus domestica 'Chisel Jersey'
Homeowner Growing and Maintenance Tips

Chisel Jersey is a somewhat biennial bearer, so one year you likely will have a heavy crop and the next a light crop.  The tree has narrow crotch angles, so spreading the limbs will be helpful.  Keep well pruned to allow light into the tree as high light is needed for it to develop sufficient flower buds for the following year.  It is susceptible to both fire blight and scab.
