Description

Propagated from a single parent apple tree which was discovered in 1998 on the remote Bardsey Island, just off the coast of North Wales. This very old fruit tree was found to be a completely unique new variety. Apple 'Bardsey Island' is a particularly disease resistant variety, showing no signs of scab or canker.

Good crops of large apples with attractive, pink-striped skins can be harvested from September. The fruits are crisp and sweet with a distinct lemon fragrance. An excellent dessert apple eaten straight from the tree or made into juice. When cooked, it forms a sweet puree that needs no sugar added.

  • Apple rootstocks:
  • M27 - Extreme dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 1.5m (5')
  • M9/ Pajam 9/ P9 - Dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 2.5m (8')
  • M26 - Dwarf reaching a mature height of 2.5-3m (8-10')
  • M6 - Semi dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 3m (10')
  • MM106 - Semi dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 4m (13')

This variety is not self-fertile. 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 a suitable pollinator. Pollination Group 2 - Cooking and Eating Apple

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

How to Grow
Plant apple trees in any well drained soil in a sheltered sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and drive the stake into the ground to support the tree. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie, and water well.
More Info

Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water apple trees during particularly dry periods.

Pruning apple trees begins immediately after planting. Remove the central stem to just above the highest side branch. For the following 3 years, prune only the tips of the remaining main branches by one third in winter. Aim for about six main branches which will form the frame of your tree, with fruiting sub branches growing off of them. From the fourth year, some sub branches can be pruned out at the union where they join the main branch, to allow new sub branches to take their place.

In order to produce the best quality, largest apples, the fruits should be thinned in July leaving two apples remaining per cluster.
