The Highlights

    • Sharp, acidic flesh breaks down into a wonderfully smooth puree. Can also be used for juicing or ciders
    • Long harvest - from mid September to mid November
    • Excellent keepers - store right through to late winter Store in a cool, dark place to keep longer. Apple racks help promote air circulation to prevent fungus and rot. Pick a couple weeks earlier before the fruit fully ripens to reduce the sugar content and extend the storing period.MORE
    • Not self fertile (Group 3) so needs another apple tree nearby to pollinate Some apple trees need another apple tree to pollinate their flowers in order to produce fruit. The trees would need to be flowering at the same time, which forms the basis for “pollination groups”. In built up areas, it is unlikely that there wouldn't be another suitable apple tree within the required radius. Self fertile trees don't require a pollination partner, although they may produce better crops if there is one nearbyMORE
    • Cordon trained Max size H2m x W1m (Perfect for growing in a pot, on a patio or in a smaller garden)
    • M26 Rootstock - Max size H3m x W3m
    • MM106 Rootstock - Max size H4m x W4m Rootstocks restrict the size of a tree to make it more suited for an average gardenMORE
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE

Care Guide

Water in well when planting - read on for ongoing care

Water in thoroughly when planting. For bare root trees, you won't need to water regularly going forward, only water in dry spells when needed. You should be able tell because the leaves will start to wilt and droop. If a container grown tree, it will need more watering until its roots are established. It should be watered every other day or so for the first few months. Then reduce to twice a week until autumn. In the second year it should have a established enough root system to support itself, just water when required as explainded above for bare roots. When watering a tree it is important to give a good soaking. It is better to water heavy and less frequently than little and often as this encourages the roots to grow down into the ground.MORE

No need to feed

Know Your Plant

Supplied as:

9L Eco Pots
This tree is supplied in a 9L Eco Pot, which is approx W15 x H30cm. Eco Pots use 70% less plastic then traditional pots and can be recycled easily. A 9L pot allows ample space for good root development and can support a good size tree.
Bare Root
Our bare root trees are lifted fresh from the field, wrapped in a moisture retentive covering and packed straight away. You can be sure they will be fresh when they arrive. In winter, you can store for several weeks if kept in a cool, dark spot. Later in spring, when the temperature rises, you will want to plant within a few days of arrival.

8L Eco Pot
This tree is supplied in a 8L Eco-Pot, which is approx W15 x H30cm. Eco Pots use 70% less plastic then traditional pots and can be recycled easily. A 8L pot allows ample space for good root development and can support a good size tree.

Height on arrival:

130-150cm

Eventual height:

3m

2m

Eventual spread:

3m

Tasting notes:

Sharp, but boils down to a full bodied, rich flavour.

Time to first crop:

1 year
You may see your first apples the first year after planting, but don't expect substantial crops until the 3/4th year. Some advise thinning the fruit in the first few years so that the tree can concentrate its energy on establishing strong roots and growing.

Hardiness:

Fully Hardy
Doesn't require any protection from frost

Self fertile:

Not self fertile
Requires a pollinating partner to produce fruit. In most built up areas, it is unlikely there will not be a suitable tree close enough to pollinate, but in rural areas you should consider making sure there is another tree in the same pollination group within a mile.

Pollination group:

3
Pollination groups relate to the time of the year when a tree flowers. Trees that flower at the same time can pollinate each other, which helps produce fruit if not self fertile, and can still improve yields even if they are. Trees can usually pollinate a group either side of their own; i.e "2" can Pollinate 1, 2, and 3

Uses:

Cooking

Rootstock:

M26 Dwarfing
Apple tree varieties are usually grown by grafting them to rootstocks. This has benefits for pest resistance, genetics and the efficiency of propagation. Importantly, it also limits the height of a tree to a more manageable, specific height. M26 apple trees tend to only reach 3m tall, perfect for smaller spaces or those afraid of stepladders.

MM106 Semi-Dwarfing
Apple tree varieties are usually grown by grafting them to rootstocks. This has benefits for pest resistance, genetics and the efficiency of propagation. Importantly, it also limits the height of a tree to a more manageable, specific height. MM106 apple trees tend to reach 4m tall, ideal if you have space and would like plenty of apples!
Cordon
Our cordon apple trees are grown on dwarfing rootstock and then trained to grow in a cordon shape. This is done by carrying out formative pruning when the tree is young to make the tree send out loads of small side branches. The result, a super compact, yet productive tree which you can grow in the smallest of spaces.
