Apple - Pitmaston Pine Apple

Wonderful old English mid-season variety, raised in Herefordshire in the late 18th century. Bears masses of small yellow-russet apples with a deliciously rich honeyed flavour. Should crop reliably throughout the UK.

Season: October - December

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.
