    Family apple trees are ideal where space is limited as there is no need to worry about pollination partners and you can pick several different varieties from the same tree. On this fab family tree, there are three grafted branches, each branch will produce one of the following varieties:

    'Queen Cox' - a moderately vigorous variety, which is self-fertile and produces perhaps the best British eating apple. These first class, juicy dessert apples can be harvestied in early to mid October.

    'James Grieve' - producing crisp and juicy, red-flushed, green apples that have remained comnsitenetly popular since they were first introduced in 1893. A reliable cropper, the apples can be used for cooking or eating and can be harvested from September.

    'Golden Delicious' - masses of pure white, cup-shaped flowers in spring are followed by large, sweet, golden-yellow dessert apples that can be harvested from mid-September. A popular and heavy cropping variety.

  • 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.

  • Pollination Information: As these trees are made up of several different varieties that can cross pollinate freely, you will not need another pollinating partner.
