Product Description

’Rubinstar’ apples are a lovely, rich maroon colour, occasionally splashed of with yellow, and being related to ‘Jonagold’ they are big and fabulously juicy with a deliciously sweet flavour and a crisp crunch. A versatile apple, they are gorgeously tasty picked straight from the tree and also ideal for cooking, making tasty desserts.

‘Rubinstar’ is a mutation of ‘Jonagold’ and is a ‘triploid’ variety, meaning that it has three sets of chromosomes instead of the usual two. Tiploid varieties are sterile, so they can’t pollinate themselves or other apple trees. They need other trees nearby to pollinate them, not an issue if you grow more than one apple in you garden, or if a nearby neighbour does!

Supplied as an established tree, 150cm (5ft) tall grown on an M9 dwarfing rootstock in a 24cm pot, growing to a height and spread of 2.5m (8ft).

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Keep well watered, and if growing in a pot, use a good quality, soil-based compost.
  • Add Rootgrow Mycorrhizal Fungi to the roots when planting to help establish your tree more quickly.
  • Place your tree in a sunny position for the best crops.

Care Guide

  • Apply a slow-release fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone, in early spring, and mulch to retain moisture.
  • Water regularly, and don't let the soil dry out if planted in pots.
  • Established trees don't require radical pruning - just take off any diseased, dying and damaged branches in late winter. Look at the overall shape and aim for an open structure of branches and remove any that cross over so they don't damage each other.
