An entire orchard on just one tree! Family fruit trees have three different varieties grafted onto one stem, which will pollinate each other and crop at different times to extend the picking season.

Apple rootstock: MM106. Height and spread if not containerised: 4m (13').
Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 4 years.
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. For more details about edible flowers click here.

1 Apple Tree (T14227)
Feed and water containerised plants regularly. Prune only the tips of the main branches by one third in winter. Some sub branches can be pruned out when necessary 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 fruits, the apples and pears should be thinned in July leaving two fruits remaining per cluster.
Plant patio fruit trees in containers holding at least 30 litres of good quality compost such as John Innes No.3. Alternatively plant them in any well drained soil in a sheltered sunny position. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level, firm them into the ground and water well.

Not what's advertised 2016-11-04
Tree came as expected and in good condition. It wasn't until a week or so later that I realised the varieties grafted onto the rootstock were not what was advertised. Very disappointed with TM.

At your earliest convenience please contact our Customer Care Department at firstname.lastname@example.org, one of our agents will be more than happy to look into this further for you.
Really pleased with this 2012-05-06
Our tree came in February and we potted it up in a large pot and followed the instructions. Within 2 weeks it came into bud, April we had lots of blossom and by May we had little apples forming. Some have dropped and we now have 6 apples (2 per variety) which are getting bigger. This is great for the first year and more than I expected or could have hoped for. Looking forward to tasting our own grown apples in a few months.
Lovely little tree 2011-05-05
I got this tree as a gift. I don't really have space for an apple tree so this was ideal. It came well packaged and in very good condition. This is it's first year in our garden and it already has a few teeny apples growing on it. I can't wait for the crops it will give us in the future. My son (aged 3) finds it fascinating to see how apples grow.
Ornamental rather than crop provider 2011-02-10
We bought this tree and the pear family tree to celebrate our son's 1st birthday. 2 years after buying, I've had a total crop of 8 apples and no fruit from the pear tree. Both trees are growing well in 50 litre tubs, flower well (and look very pretty) but are reluctant to crop.
