Feed and water containerised plants regularly. 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.

Plant patio fruit trees in 60cm (2') diameter containers using a 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.

Excellent apple tree 2010-06-10

Have planted this in a fruit cage at the allotment and even in the first year after planting, it bore fruit. Clearly needs supporting and for all dwarf trees weeding around the base is essential but so far so good and having just tasted the first fruit, I would have to say yummy! Crunchy, clean flavour and very tasty! Probably a mid/late-season apple
