The perfect way to grow your very own fresh fruit without needing lots of space! You can now pick abundant crops of delicious plums, apples & pears from your own orchard fruit collection.
These fruit trees have been specially grown on ‘dwarfing’ rootstocks to keep them at a maximum height of 2.5m, making them compact and easy to maintain as well as perfect for growing in smaller spaces like patios, or terraces. Although compact, they’ll produce full size crops or grower-quality but on your very own back doorstep.
What’s more, you may even pick your first juicy fresh fruit in the first year. They’re all self-fertile so you don’t need any other trees to pollinate with and you will start to see an increase in crop year on year, with a potential to provide a high product yield costing only pennies per lb to produce.
The beautiful, fragrant blossom in spring will precede the fruits, with 'Victoria' cropping from July, 'Conference' in September and 'Braeburn' in October.
Delicious fresh from the tree, they also make perfect jams and preserves or can be stored for later use - 'Conference' and 'Braeburn' will even keep until Christmas!
'Braeburn' is the UK's most popular eating apple variety by far and it will easily grow and flourish superbly in your garden! The crisp and juicy white-fleshed fruits have what is considered by most to be the perfect sweet/tangy flavour balance, literally providing a flavour explosion with every mouthful! The gorgeous fruit will be ready to pick fresh from your tree by mid-October each season and will store well until the end of January if kept chilled but frost free.
'Conference' Pear produces a large crop of fruits with clear white flesh that are ready to pick each September. The long, tapering fruits are packed with an irresistible sweetness and lip-smacking juice that will drip from your chin when you bite in to a ripe one! Because of its outstanding flavour, it remains the most popular pear grown in Britain by a long measure both in commercial orchards and home gardens. It is perfect for you to grow because it is very heavy cropping and when picked unripe, it is great for keeping for 2 or more months.
