Stunning new variety unlike any others, developed and recently released by the award winning grower William Barnet from Herefordshire. The apples have a brilliant, glossy, golden orange skin, enclosing an amazing pink flesh. The aromatic apples are firm fleshed, crisp and very juicy with a delicious flavour. This is a quirky, tasty new addition to the many wonderful English apple varieties. If picked in September and stored well it is still excellent up to Christmas.

The blossom attracts bees, and later any fallen fruit is eagerly consumed by thrushes and other similar birds. Bullfinches are, unfortunately, partial to the buds.

Pollinators

Apple, Surprize is in pollination group 1 (early season), and requires a pollinator. Choose a pollinator in group 1 or 2, click here for a list of suitable apple trees. Crab apples such as Golden Hornet and John Downie also are good pollinators for all apples. In areas where there are many apple trees already growing it may not be necessary to plant an extra pollinator.

Apple, Surprize is available as:

Br = Bare Root Plant

Maiden - A maiden tree is a single stemmed tree which has not been trained so can be trained into whatever form you wish. It typically is between 1-2 metres tall and will have a few side shoots.

Bare-Root Plants

Bare-root plants are sold without a pot/soil around the roots. This is a more cost effective and environmentally friendly way of growing plants. To ensure the best plant health we do not store our plants in cold storage, but they are left in our field or plant beds until they are ready for packing or collection.

Items marked Br are bare rooted plants grown from cuttings and are typically 1-2 years old.

Availability

Bare rooted plants are only available when the plants are dormant (typically from late November to March).

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.

Rootstocks

Rootstocks are used to restrict the vigour of fruit trees and allow a range to grow in a small space. They can also contribute to the disease resisting abilities of the plant.[from RHS - Update]

M26 - A dwarfing rootstock that is suitable for growing Bush, pyramid, spindlebush and espalier trees. Typically fruits after 2 or 3 years and requires staking. Tree spacing 2.4-3.6m (8-12ft) with 4.5m (15ft) between rows. Ultimate height as trained as bush: 2.4-3m (8-10ft) x 3.6m (12ft).
