Commonly known as Culinary apple, Dessert apple

Malus x domestica . 3 year old grafts, nurtured, shaped and ready for cropping. Most in this selection will act as pollinator for others. Bramley will not act as pollinator and will require at least two other different selections.

Cultivated apples, Malus domestica are the descendants of M. sieversii which still flourishes whence it originates in the mountains of Kazakhstan.

Cherished through millenia, and the source of countless myths, it is the most versatile of all tree fruits.
