Apple 'Gala' (Mini Fruit Tree)

Malus

A well loved variety in the UK, Apple 'Gala' is widely grown in gardens and a popular supermarket choice. This reliable cultivar produces attractive, red flushed fruits with a surprisingly sweet flavour when eaten straight from the tree, and make a delicious juicing apple. The fruits can be harvested from September onwards, and eaten fresh or stored for up to 3 months whilst retaining their sweet flavour.

Grafted onto a semi dwarfing rootstock, the crowns of 'Gala' apple trees are easily reached to prune, spray and pick your delicious fruit. Apple 'Gala' is partially self fertile but it is best grown with another variety to ensure good pollination. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator. Height and spread: 1m (39") Rootstock: M27.

Apple 'Sir Isaac Newton'

Malus domestica, Apple 'Flower of Kent'

Plant a direct descendant of one of the most historically important trees in Britain, a celebrated national treasure for over 300 years - Sir Isaac Newton's Apple tree! The original tree associated with Sir Isaac Newton's observations on gravity stood in the garden of his home, Woolsthorpe Manor; near Grantham. The tree is said to have fallen in a storm and has subsequently regrown on the site, and is still there to this day. It is from this tree that this Sir Isaac Newton's Apple Tree has been propagated, offering a rare opportunity to grow a piece of history in your own garden.


Each tree comes with certification that the tree has been DNA verified as a direct descendant of the original tree in Woolthorpe Manor Gardens. The variety is known as the 'Flower of Kent', and produces hefty cooking apples with an old-fashioned, bumpy shape. The green skin flushes red where the sun shines on it and the fruit cooks to a soft puree with a refined, sweet flavour.


Grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock, the crowns of Sir'Isaac Newton's' apple trees are easily reached to prune, spray and pick your delicious fruit. Apple 'Flower of Kent' is not self fertile so it is best grown with another variety to ensure good pollination. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as suitable pollinator. Height and spread: Up to 3m (10'). Rootstock: M26.


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.
