  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Ultimate size on MM106 rootstock: 5.5 x 5.5m (18 x 18ft)
  • Ultimate size on M27 rootstock: 1.8 x 1.8m (6x6ft)
  • Flowering period: April and May
  • Hardiness: fully hardy
  • Pollination Group: C - flowering mid to late season

    This is perfect for smaller gardens as you dont need another tree to produce a bumber crop of sweet, crisp and aromatic fruits that are ready to eat in September. It will be happy in a large pot, as long as it is kep well fed and watered, and it has a good resistance to many of the common diseases. We think it is going to be very popular.

  • 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: This apple belongs to pollination group C, however it is self fertile, so does not need a pollinating partner to produce a bumper crop of apples. It can also be used to cross-pollinate with other apples in this group.

      Hello there
      You could plant the M27 rootstock which can grow to approx 1.8m x 1.8m in a pot ,approx 50-60cm diameter, in a John Innes No 3 compost. However it will need to be well watered and fed during the growing season.
      Hope this helps.

  • Q:

    Small Apple trees for a pot

    Hello We want to buy an apple tree but ut it needs to be small enough to stay in a pot for at least the next 2-3 years, just in case we move from our present home. Is there such a thing? And do we need more than 1 apple tree? I would welcome any advice. Kind regards

      Hello There, Apples generally need a pollinating partner (i.e. a different variety of apple tree that flowers at the same time) to produce fruit, but there is one that is self fertile called 'Scrumptious'. Their eventual height will be determined by what rootstock they are grafted onto. For pot growth, you should aim to get a tree that has been grafted onto M27 rootstock, which will produce a plant around 1.8 x 1.8m. If you click on this link it will take you to the tree:- http://www.crocus.co.uk/plants/_/fruit/bush/orchard-fruit/apple/kitchengarden/fruit/fruit-trees/apple-scrumptious/classid.2000013050/ Hope this helps Helen Plant Doctor

  • Q:

    Small fruit tree for pot

    Hi there, I have some tokens for Crocus which I would like to put towards a fruit tree. The main requirement is finding a species which can grow in a large pot, at least until I move to a bigger location. Can you advise as to which would be best suited for this situation? I am most interested in an apple or pear, but if there is something else you can suggest, I???m keen to hear your ideas. Many thanks Diane

  • Q:

    My apple tree is being choked by ivy

    I have just moved house and now have an old apple tree that is covered in very thick ivy. What is the best treatment if any?

    • A:

      Your apple tree will get a new lease on life if you can get rid of the ivy. The best way to tackle it is up a ladder. As gently as you can you should peel off the ivy, cutting it back as you go. Once it is cut right back, treat the stump and any remaining foliage with a heavy duty tough weedkiller that contains glysophate. Be warned though that this weedkiller will kill off everything it comes in contact with, so you have to be very careful not to get it onto anything you want to keep. After the ivy has been killed off, you can give the apple a feed with a good general purpose plant food to give it a boost.
