Malus domestica 'Bardsey'

This is a very special dual-purpose dessert/culinary apple, believed to be the only survivor of an orchard tended by monks on remote Bardsey Island (off the Welsh coast) 1000 years ago. Discovered only recently, the ancient mother tree is miraculously free from disease - a very unusual occurrence in north Wales. The fruits are striped pink and have a distinct scent of lemon. They will cook to a delicate light golden fluff and require no added sugar. Eaten as a dessert apple the fruits are crisp, sweet and juicy.

Bred in the U.K.  RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Pollination: Group A.


Season: Mid Sept.


Tree Form: Cordon.

One of the best loved fruits, apples are probably the easiest tree fruits to grow and are very popular with gardeners. In the shops we only tend to see a handful of varieties, yet there are literally thousands of known cultivars, each having their own characteristics. We have very carefully selected what we believe to be a diverse range of varieties to suit all tastes and even the most challenging growing conditions - some are recent introductions and some are much loved gems from our heritage.  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. Cordons should be restricted to 1.8-2.4m (6-8ft) in height and can be spaced 60cm (2ft) apart. Cordon apple trees are 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatchPot grown trees are available from May to late August.

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).
