Root Stock: MM106
Pollination group: BT. Triploid.
It is a triploid and provides little pollen. Triploid trees can only receive pollen, they cannot pollinate other trees. This means that if you buy a triploid tree, you will need two other trees so they they can pollinate each other as well as the triploid tree. They must be different to each other. Suitable varieties are:
Apple domestica 'Discovery'
Apple domestica 'Egremont Russet'
Apple domestica 'James Grieve'
Apple domestica 'Spartan'
Apple domestica 'Katy'
Apple domestica 'Charles Ross'
Apple domestica 'Grenadier'
Jupiter' is incompatible with Apple domestica 'Cox's Orange Pippin'.
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.
