The Ty Ty Nursery Wildlife Apple tree produces a small apple known as a horse apple. Wildlife animals, especially squirrels, will tear open the fruit for its seeds and the thorny dense growth is used by countless small wildlife species to shelter themselves from predators. Grafted apple trees are often planted for wildlife food plots, because the ripe apples are eaten directly off the tree by deer, or when the apples drop to the ground, where deer and other wildlife animals feast on the fruit during the fall and winter feeding season.• Deer love the taste of wildlife apples and will eat them right off the tree! Turkey, as well as other wild life love animals apples! Squirrels love to eat apples and will sometimes use them as a water source as well. Ducks and ducklings will eat almost anything, including the fruit of a wildlife apple tree.
