When to plant an apple tree

Asked January 3, 2016, 12:37 AM EST

I see an article about how to plant an apple tree, but didn't see anything about when to plant one. Also, are their any apple varieties to stay away from?

The best time to plant fruit trees is in the spring as soon as the soil can be worked. See the attached publication for more information and recommended apple varieties http://extension.umd.edu/sites/default/files/_images/programs/hgic/Publications/HG69_Getting_Started...
