Falstaff Apple Tree

An excellent performer with large crops of juicy red apples

The Highlights

    • Renowned heavy cropper
    • Excellent sweet, juicy apples with slight sharpness
    • RHS Award Winner
    • Mid season apple - harvest mid October
    • M26 Rootstock - Max size H3m x W3m Rootstocks restrict the size of a tree to make it more suited for an average gardenMORE
    • Self fertile - will produce good crops without pollination
    • 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

Know Your Plant

Supplied as:

9L Eco Pot
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.

Height on arrival:

120-150cm inc. pot
120-150cm inc. roots

Eventual height:

3m
3m

Eventual spread:

3m

Tasting notes:

Fine flavoured; sweet with a short sharpness

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:

Self fertile
Doesn't requires a pollination partner to produce fruit but may produce better crops if one nearby. 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:

Eating

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.
