Plant details

In contrast to the limited number of different apple cultivars available in the shops, growing your own apples offers a wide range of varieties to choose from. Bred in Norfolk in 1826, 'Adams's Pearmain' is a wonderful pear-shaped apple. It has a fine yellowish skin with a red blush. It is a good quality eating apple with a dry, nutty flavour - similar to 'Egremont Russet' - and deserves to be grown more widely. Fruits ripen in October and will store until March. The eventual size of the tree depends on the rootstock that it has been grafted on to by the nursery.
