Product details

First recorded in 1872, this lovely eating apple is thought to have originated in Sussex. It rose to popularity in Victorian times and is still a favourite today, only behind Cox’s Pippin and Bramley Seedling in terms of commercial production acreage.

The yellow / green russet apples are sweet with a hint of pear flavour and can store well.

Where no other Malus is in the vicinity it is always worth planting with a Malus John Downie or Evereste to pollinate. It is a tough tree, thriving on most soil types, light and heavy, as well as taking on more northerly aspects of the UK with ease.

Pink tinged flower buds open to white in the spring and apples can be harvested from August onwards.

If you live in an area prone to rabbits or deer then we recommend rabbit guards for these trees.

Mature height 3-7m

Mature spread: 4-6m
