Get the best of both worlds with these easy to grow, compact and tasty apple producing ballerina apple trees!
Ballerina Apple Trees are the original and best columnar fruit trees as their unique virtually branchless habit is a genetic trait and not just a result of intensive nursery training and pruning. This means they are sure to keep their shape over the years without further skilled pruning. Raised at the famous East Malling Research Station in Kent they are perfectly suited for the British climate too.
Reaching only 2m height after 5 years these are the easiest trees to harvest as the apples naturally occur on small spurs close to the main stem. As well as being productive fruit trees Ballerinas make spectacular garden ornaments, grown in a large pot. They are superb patio plants and look wonderful displayed either side of a doorway or garden gate.
Ballerina Flamenco has lovely white spring blossom followed by a good crop of juicy red apples.
Ballerina ‘Bolero’ bears lovely pink flushed flowers in spring followed by a September crop of juicy green apples flushed with pink that are tasty and sweet picked straight from the tree.
Supplied as a pair of 1.5L potted tree approx. 80-100cm tall - one of each variety; 'Flamenco' and 'Bolero'
