    This upright, spreading tree is covered in pure white, cup-shaped flowers in mid and late spring, followed by crisp, juicy, red dessert apples. The tree forms a natural dome shape, and the leaves are small, toothed and dark green. Unlike other fruiting varieties, the fruits from this tree keep well for several weeks after they're harvested in mid-August.

  • 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: This apple belongs to pollination group B, so you will need to plant one other different variety of apple to guarantee cross pollination, and a subsequent bumper crop. Ideally this should come from the same pollination group, however it is possible to use one from group A or C as well.
