Apple - Discovery

Excellent early eating apple. Sweet, crisp and juicy with a delicious tangy flavour. An easy variety to grow, compact, heavy cropping and frost-resistant. Beautiful pink and white blossom in spring.

Season: August - September

Planting Distance: 4m (13ft)

Approximate Height: 3m (10ft) after 10 years

Instances of poor pollination are nearly always caused by bad weather at blossom time, limiting the activity of insects.

This apple tree is growing on a semi-dwarf rootstock, ideal for the average garden.

Apples need a sunny site and a neutral soil to crop well, a pH of 6.5 - 7.5 is ideal.
