One of the few apples which can truly compete with the Cox's orange pippin for flavour, with a sweet complex flavour and crisp texture. Unlike Cox's orange pippin this tree is easy to grow and generally problem free. It is late to ripen so prefers a sunny spot in the garden. An attractive tree with crimson pink blossom. Although commonly grown in the UK, this tree originates from New Zealand.
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.
