Apple - Reverend W. Wilks

Reliable heavy-cropping early cooker, a compact tree producing enormous yellow fruit that bake superbly. In common with other early varieties it does not keep well.

Season: August - November

Planting Distance: 3m (10ft)

Approximate Height: 2.5m (8ft) 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.
