Bountiful Cooking Apple Tree Malus Domestica - Root Wrapped from Primrose Plants

Bountiful Cooking Apple Tree Malus Domestica - Root Wrapped Malus Domestica is a reliable, heavy cropper apple tree variety which produces large fruits with a moist, crisp texture and slightly sharp flavour. The fruits, in shades of pale green, orange, or red, ripen from late September/October and are suitable for storing and overwintering. They do not lose their form after cooking or baking, meaning that they are the perfect for apple pies, stir fry dishes, desserts, and for roasting with meat. Characteristics Flower Colour: white/pink Foliage Colour: green Current Size: approx. 150cm Approx. Growth Height: 3-4m Flowering Period: spring (April - May) Harvesting Period: October Season of Use: October - January Tolerance: frost tolerant, fairly drought tolerant once established Growing Habit: bush, cordon, espalier, fan Uses: eating fresh, cooking, baking Hardiness: fully hardy Exposure: sheltered Rate of Growth: fast Scented: barely Wildlife friendly - attracts bees and other pollinating insects Requirements Light Requirements: full sun Soil Requirements: almost all normal garden soil with pH 6.5 - 7.5 Moisture: moist, well-drained, moderately fertile Caring and Maintenance Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems. Planting Planting Distance: 3m Suited to almost all well-drained and moderately fertile soils with a pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in a sheltered, full sun location. Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Dig a hole approximately a third wider than the root ball. Carefully yet firmly backfill the remaining soil around the root ball and water well during the first year until well established. Autumn is the best season for planting fruiting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems. Pollination: Pollination Group: 3 Each fruiting tree has ideal pollination partners. These are divided into groups and are numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6, according to flowering time. Best results will be obtained if variety is planted near another apple tree of the same group, or from a group on either side (so an ideal pollination partner for group 3 would be one in group 2, 3 or 4). In normal suburban planting, apples are usually planted in large numbers to give adequate pollination. The major cause of poor pollination is bad weather in blossom time, limiting the activity of insects. These fruits taste best when freshly picked from their branches. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Fruit plants are a valuable addition to any garden, bearing in mind that they do not only provide fruits, but also make a bold statement in garden arrangements by producing clouds of pink and white flowers, which at the slightest breeze fall like raindrops. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.
