    'Cox's Self Fertile' - this is regarded by many as one of the best eating apples. They have a superb flavour and sweet aroma with deep creamy flesh. Ready to harvest in 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.

    'Katy' - a recent introduction that is proving popular for its heavy crop of bright red fruits, which have a firm, juicy flesh with just the righ balance between sweet and acid. Excellent for juicing and making cider.

  • 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.

Eventual height & spread

I am considering buying this but I am not sure if this is the best variety for my garden and area. It is mostly sunny and fertile. Would a hardier variety be better?

Hello, I have double checked the hardiness ratings for these apples and they are all fully hardy - so I have amended the information on our site. I do apologise for any confusion.
