Apple 'Isaac Newton'

Malus domestica, Apple 'Flower of Kent'

  • NEW in 2014

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 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 '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.

A particularly attractive tree, Crab Apple 'Royalty' is unmistakeable for its dark mahogany foliage that turns to scarlet in Autumn. The deep pink springtime apple blossom is followed by dark red fruits that make a fabulous crab apple jelly. 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: M6. Height and spread: 3m (10').

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

Apple 'Croquella'

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.
Estimated time to best yields: 5 years.

Medlar 'Westerveldt' (patio)

Mespilus germanica, Dutch Medlar, Minshull Crab

  • NEW in 2014

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'.
