Quince 'Vranja' (patio)

Cydonia oblonga

An attractive tree with beautiful rounded silver leaves and pretty green-pink flowers in spring. The large, 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 'Vranja' is propagated onto 'Quince A' rootstock. It is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Height and spread: 4m (13').


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

Apple 'Pinova'

Malus domestica

Dessert apple 'Pinova' boasts a lovely flavour which is not surprising when it has both Golden Delicious and Cox in its parentage. The delicious, smooth skinned, yellow-orange fruits are ready to harvest from September, but will hang on the tree until December, and store well for up to 3 months if picked. Apple 'Pinova' is easy to grow and also has excellent resistance to mildew and scab.


Grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock, the crowns of 'Pinova' apple trees are easily reached to prune, spray and pick your delicious fruit. 'Pinova' is not self-fertile so for the heaviest crops it is best grown with another variety. 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. Root wrap plant supplied. Height and spread: 2.5m (8') Rootstock: M9.


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 3 years.

Crab Apple 'Golden Hornet'

Malus x zumi

Pink buds open to reveal pretty white cup shaped blossom in April and May, followed by spectacular crops of bright golden-yellow fruits that make an eye-catching autumn display and hold on the tree well into winter.

Any unpicked fruits will soften after a few frosts to create a sumptuous food source for wild birds. Crab apples are self fertile and if planted near orchard apple trees make excellent pollinators. Rootstock: M26. Height and spread: 3m (10').

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 1 year.
Estimated time to best yields: 3 years.

Apple 'Pixirosso'

Malus domestica

 Customer Rating

A real gem! When fully ripe, the fresh, crisp flesh is a spectacular bright pink-red colour, with dramatic white flashes running through it. Unlike many red-fleshed apples that have been bred in the past this delicious and visually stunning apple has a lovely sweet flavour. Apple 'Pixirosso' is a vigorous grower with pretty red blossom and attractive red foliage. The fruits can be harvested from October.


Grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock, the crowns of 'Pixirosso' apple trees are easily reached to prune, spray and pick your delicious fruit. Apple 'Pixirosso' is not self fertile so it is best grown with another mid season flowering group 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: 2m (6') Rootstock: M9.


Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 4 years.
