The apple tree was introduced on June 8, 2009 as one of the first trees that could be grown using the new garden feature in Pet Society.
After planting, it will take 72 hours for the apple tree to reach maturity. Afterward, the tree will begin producing fruit, one apple at a time, randomly. A pet can have up to three total apples on the tree at once.
Homegrown apples from this tree can be used to fish at the Pet Society Pond. These apples are one of two items that can catch the Applefish.
