Apple - Spartan

£17.50Price
  • Spartan old favourite mid-late sweet, crisp, very juicey apple that stores well, medium vigour growth, regular heavy cropper, Medium fruit.

    Spartan is a great, popular eating apple in itself but also lends itself superbly to press juicing when blended with either Jonagold, Cox or Jonagored and a crab apple such as John Downie or Neville Copeman in equal amounts. These varieties all ripen in the same weeks, with the juice content of the two crab apple varieties John Downie and Neville Copeman nearly as much as the eating apples.

     

    Growing two or more apples together plus an ornamental crab apple also greatly increases pollination.

     

    Our apple trees are summer grafted onto MM106 rootstock to produce a semi vigorous tree even in poorer soils.

     

    Supplied dormant, 1-2yr bare root, 4-5 ft, from November to early April while stocks last. Due to demand, early ordering ahead is recommended and product will be despatched when conditions are suitable.
