This is a handsome, traditional English dual-purpose deciduous apple with tender flesh and a juicy, sweet flavour. It is a pleasant culinary and dessert variety which must be used as soon as it's picked, as it does not store well and becomes dry with age.
Excellent for using in tarts as the slices keep their shape well. The fruits are produced on spreading branches between September and December. Tolerant of shallow, chalky soils.
Although partially self-fertile, it will benefit from having a nearby pollinator. Suitable pollinators are:
Apple domestica 'Discovery'
Apple domestica 'Egremont Russet'
Apple domestica 'James Grieve'
Apple domestica 'Spartan'
Apple domestica Katy
Apple domestica 'Cox's Orange Pippin'
Apple domestica 'Grenadier'
Root Stock: MM106
Produces an abundant crop year after year. Pollination group: B. Part Self-Fertile.
Note: 2 year+ stock with established heads not 1 year maidens.
Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries
Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.
Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
