Malus domestica 'Elstar' is a dessert apple tree in the pollination group 3. It grows to medium size with deciduous foliage and blooms in spring with beautiful delicate pink flowers. This variety produces regular heavy crops of greenish-yellow fruit flushed with rich red hues. The apples are intensely crisp with honeyed notes.
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.
