Apple - Pinova

Modern disease-resistant German variety introduced in 1986. Very heavy cropping, beautifully coloured small thin-skinned fruit, crisp sweet and bursting with juice, ideal for children. Will hang on the tree till December, keeps through till late March.

Season: November - January

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.
