Plant details

Easily grown as a garden tree, it produces crisp, juicy apples. Plant in a hot, sunny site, ideally on a gentle, south-facing slope. The ultimate size and vigour depends on which rootstock it has been grafted. Thin out the young crop so that the remaining apples reach a good size and are of good quality. They should be approximately 10-15cm apart. Store the apples in a well-ventilated, frost-free place with a cold, stable temperature. Wrapping each apple in tissue helps prevent shrivelling.
