Product Information

If you love apples but only have room for one fruit tree here is the perfect solution for you as this family tree has five different varieties growing on the same plant. It's not a freak of nature but the result of skilful grafting work by expert nurserymen who have grafted four additional varietes onto a Braeburn tree. By careful selection of varieties you can be sure all five parts of the tree will grow in harmony and the fruits will ripen at their natural time giving a succession of tasty fruits across a much wider 'cropping window' that if just one variety were grown.  No need to worry about pollinataion either as the five varieties on the tree will pollinate each other!

Your Family Apple Tree will thrive in a sunny border and , far from being just a curiosity, will mature into a highly productive tree. You can expect the first crop as soon as the year after planting.  This is also the perfect fruit tree for a a large pot on the patio.

The main tree is Braeburn -now the most popular variety in the UK with red flushed crispy tangy sweet apples ripening from mid October. Onto this have been grafted:

Belle de Boskoop - Red and green with some russetting,  October ripening all round variety from Holland with a sweet sharp taste. Eat fresh or good for cooking.

Gala - hugely popular dessert apple and perfect for the British climate where it ripens perfectly to deep red flecked with yellow. Very sweet juicy apples ready from late September.

Elstar. Bred from Golden Delicious this is a top quality late season apple with a part red skin and honeyed sweet flesh when ripe from December. Perfect for eating at Christmas.

Ecolette. A new variety with excellent disease resistance and shiny red skin. Pick in October to eat through to December. Firm crisp flesh that is sharp tasing yet very sweet.

Top Tips

Get trees established well in first year for earlier and bigger crops in future.

Care Information

  • Once established, apples need very little care. Keep well-watered especially during dry spells and if newly planted or in containers.
  • Apples thrive in a well-drained soil at least 60cm (2ft) deep. Add well rotted organic matter before planting and mulch and water well through the growing season until the tree is growing well.
  • In early spring, sprinkle a general fertiliser around the base of the tree.
  • Apples should be pruned every year to remove any dead or damaged branches and any over-long shoots.
  • Established trees can be mulched in mid-spring to help retain soil moisture, suppress weeds, and provide nitrogen.
  • Pruning should be carried out in spring or summer - avoid pruning in the dormant season or in mid to late autumn to reduce the risk of introducing disease.
