Apple (Malus) ‘James Grieve’
Pot size: 12 litre.
A self-fertile (so does not need a pollinator), fan-trained apple that produces fruit with a red flush stripe on a pale green skin. Its flowers in spring are light pink/white. Its fruits can be picked in September and stores until October. On first picking the fruit may be too sharp to be eaten fresh but can be cooked and mellows with time.
Perfect for cooking and eating. It is a classic Scottish dual-purpose apple that was named after its breeder and first appeared in the Victorian era. This variety also has an Award of Garden Merit from the Royal Horticultural Society. It is an excellent pollinator for many other apple varieties and a good one therefore to include in any orchard big or small. British-grown.
Fan-trained trees have their branches splayed out like a fan and also need to be planted against a wall or fence or similar structure. Eventual height x spread: 3-4m x 3-4m.
Don’t forget all our plants come with a five-year hardy plant guarantee.
