Apple 'Braeburn' - This well known dessert variety earns its popularity by being easy to grow, early to crop from a young age, and having excellent storage potential.
Apple 'Bramley's Seedling' - The most famous cooking apple of all, producing large fruits with a sharp acidic flavour that are ideal for making delicious pies and crumbles.
Apple 'Cox's Orange Pippin' - Regarded to be the finest tasting dessert apple, the rich aromatic flavour and crisp, juicy texture set this apple apart from other varieties.

3 Apple Trees - 1 Of Each Variety (T99578P)
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.

These arrived about a month and a half ago and I planted them promptly according to instructions. I was a little nervous at first because it felt like planting sticks at that point but nope, now spring is in full blast and all three seem to have settled in perfectly. All have lovely little leaves, seem healthy as ever and one of the trees is even flowering. I might get an apple or two in the first summer!
