    'James Grieve' - producing crisp and juicy, red-flushed, green apples that have remained consitenetly popular since they were first introduced in 1893. A reliable cropper, the apples can be used for cooking or eating and can be harvested from 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: 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.
