The Apple Tree is a type of fruit tree in Stardew Valley. It takes 28 days to grow to maturity, after which it will produce one Apple each day during the Fall. It can only grow in the center of a 3x3 square, each square of which must be kept completely clear, including the canopy of other trees. Once mature, the surrounding tiles no longer need to be kept clear.
For each full year since maturing, fruit trees will produce higher quality fruit, up to iridium star quality after three years. Note that fruit quality will not increase if the surrounding tiles are not kept clear. Several players have reported that crafted floors and paths as well as grass do not hinder the progression of quality fruit.
Fruit trees can be planted in the Greenhouse.
