Medium to large yellow-green, distinctively ribbed, deciduous cooking apple. This variety an early season, hardy and very easy to manage and grow. Crops are usually ready from mid-August. The crops are heavy and the flavour very refreshing. Poor storage quality is the only downfall of this variety. Suitable for Northern, colder, higher rainfall areas. Crops best when planted in a sunny situation.
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 'Charles Ross'
Apple domestica 'Cox's Orange Pippin'
Apple domestica 'Golden Delicious'
Root Stock: MM106
Pollination group: B. Part self-fertile.
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.
