Apple Tree 'Orleans Reinette'

Apple Tree 'Orleans Reinette'

Apple Tree 'Orleans Reinette' Code: APL061

£21.95 21.9500 In Stock New

Malus domestica 'Orleans Reinette'

This classic dual purpose dessert/culinary apple is the French equivalent of our Cox's Orange Pippin, thought to have originated from France in the late 18th century. The golden russet fruits are flushed red and have a wonderful, complex, orangey, nutty flavour. Particularly delicious in salads and for accompanying vintage port at Christmas time but also very useful as a cooking apple. In French cuisine it is used in the famous upside down apple tarte 'Tarte Tatin'. The tree is vigorous and has good scab resistance.

RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Pollination: Group C.

A much loved and ever popular fruit, dessert apples (sometimes referred to as eating apples) are those varieties that are sweet enough to be eaten ‘straight from the tree’ without any cooking required. One of the delights for any home gardener is watching apples ripen on the tree and then deciding which ones are ready to be harvested. With such a diverse range of appearances and flavours ranging from hints of strawberry to aniseed, an apple variety can be found to suit everyone.

 

Our apple trees are grafted onto M26 semi-dwarfing rootstock, which will produce a tree that is easy to grow, easy to control and easy to pick. Bush apple trees will grow 2.4-3.6m (8-12ft) in height and spread. To ensure rapid establishment, apple trees are supplied bare-rooted and will be 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatch. Trees are available from late November to late April.

 

Don't forget to include tree stakes and ties on your order.  All young fruit trees require staking and for better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
