Relatively new cultivar developed by East Malling research station in 1972. One of the best Cox-style apples, and much easier to grow being fairly disease free. This cultivar is suited to growing on dwarfing rootstocks, forming compact growing trees able to yield heavily despite small size. Best when harvested at the end of September or early October, this variety is a good keeper, storing until January.
Flowering group D (Mid).
M27 is the most dwarfing of all apple rootstocks, producing a tree which will be about the same size as a person standing with their arms slightly spread out (1.2-1.8m). They can be container grown or spaced 1-1.5 apart in a small garden. They need permanent staking and a little extra care with regards to watering and feeding. They start fruiting after two years and considering their size can bare a good yield of apples.
M27 trees are sold as feathered maidens (1 year trees with branch development) pot grown. As a result they can be supplied all year round, but it is best to collect as the postage costs are much higher. On special request M27 trees can be supplied bareroot and thus posted out.
