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.

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. Rootstock: Quince A. Height and spread if not containerised: 3m (9').

Quince 'Leskovac' (patio)

Cydonia oblonga

A productive and hardy quince with a neat dwarf habit that makes it perfect for small gardens and patio containers. Like its larger cousins, Quince 'Leskovac' is clothed in beautiful rounded silver leaves and pretty green-pink flowers in spring. The fragrant, pear shaped fruits that follow ripen to a lovely shade of yellow, and can be harvested from October. Freshly picked quinces are bitter and inedible, but once cooked they soften to make excellent jams and jellies, and enhance the flavour of apple pies when a few slices are added before cooking.


Quince 'Leskovac' is propagated onto 'Quince Adams' rootstock. It is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Height and spread: 1m (39'). Rootstock Quince A.


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

Medlar 'Westerveldt' (patio)

Mespilus germanica, Dutch Medlar, Minshull Crab

You can now grow this unusual fruit on your patio! Medlar 'Westerveldt' is a compact clone which has been grafted high up on to 'Quince C' rootstock to encourage an even more compact habit. Ideal for growing in large containers, this small tree produces large white flowers in spring followed by full-sized medlar fruits in the autumn. The attractive leathery leaves turn to shades of golden orange in autumn making this a worthwhile specimen plant for the patio. The russet coloured, apple shaped fruits are excellent eaten with wine, port and cheese, although are more commonly used to make medlar jelly or the Victorian delicacy Medlar cheese.


Grafted onto a 'Quince C' rootstock, to produce a compact tree with moderate vigour. This Medlar is well suited to growing in small spaces and 60cm (24") diameter containers. 'Westerveldt' is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Medlars will begin to fruit 2 or 3 years after planting. Height and spread: 1m (3') (if containerised). Rootstock: 'Quince C'.
