- Garden care: Keep the base of the tree weed free fertilise at the beginning of each year and water regularly during hot dry spells. Remove damaged or crossing branches during the dormant season.
The trees are 90cm wide at the widest point (between the top two U's) and are about 1.3m tall.
- Pollination Information: This apple belongs to pollination group D so you will need need to plant one other different variety of apple to guarantee cross pollination and a subsequent bumper crop. Ideally this should come from the same pollination group however it is possible to use one from group C as well.
White cup-shaped flowers appear in spring followed by sweet and juicy orange-red apples streaked with yellow in September. This is the first good apple of summer (it is usually ready to pick in August) and it tastes delicious with undertones of anise. The apples can only be stored until the end of September.
This apple tree has been grown specifically in a double U cordon shape making it easier to pick and is great for growing against walls garden dividers or as screening. The tree has been grown for a substantial number of years to form this lovely shape.
