This upright, spreading tree is covered in pure white, cup-shaped flowers in mid and late spring, followed by crisp, juicy, red dessert apples. The tree forms a natural dome shape, and the leaves are small, toothed and dark green. Unlike other fruiting varieties, the fruits from this tree keep well for several weeks after they're harvested in mid August. To guarantee cross pollination plant in a sunny, open site with another tree from the same pollination group. Garden care: Keep the base of the tree weed free, fertilise at the beginning of each year and water regularly during hot, dry spells. Remove damaged or crossing branches during the dormant season.
