Malus domestica, Patio fruit tree
The naturally dwarf habit of Apple 'Croquella' makes this French variety perfect for growing in containers. Good crops of bright red apples with crisp white flesh can be harvested from September onwards. This compact apple tree takes on a rather oriental appearance as it ages which forms a particularly attractive patio fruit tree.
Apple 'Croquella' is partially self-fertile, but for the heaviest crops 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: 120cm (48"). Rootstock: Pajam 9.
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.More info
