    Family apple trees are ideal where space is limited as there is no need to worry about pollination partners and you can pick several different varieties from the same tree. On this fab family tree including a mix of cooking and eating apples,there are three grafted branches, each branch will produce one of the following varieties:

    'Bramley 20' - this is regarded by many as one of the best cooking apples. Heavier cropping than the original the greenish-yellow fruits are ready to harvest in mid-October.

    'Christmas Pippin' - producing bumper crops of delicious eating apples, this recent introduction has been hailed as 'the new garden cox'. High quality apples with a honeyed flavour are ready to harvest in early October.

    'Scrumptious'- reliably producing sweet, crisp, aromatic fruits with red skins this delicious variety is gaining in popularity and we have noticed its a favourite with children. Ready to harvest in September.

  • 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.
