Apple Tree 'Broadholme Beauty' (Late)
This remarkable dual-purpose variety came about by chance. It was bred by plantsman Henry Lovely, who planted a pip from a James Grieve apple and grew it on. The tree eventually bore fruit and the result was an excellent, naturally sweet apple, which is ideal for diabetics, as it does not require any added sugar. It also has an extraordinarily thin skin. It has good keeping qualities, good disease resistance and stands up well to a variety of weather conditions.
Apple trees are grafted on a M26 rootstock and will reach an eventual height of 2.5-3.5m (8-12ft). Trees should be planted 3-4.5m (10-15ft) apart.
Apple trees are available for delivery from late November until late March.
Please remember that fruit trees do require staking for the first few years of their life, we also strongly recommend the use of rootgrow™ when planting to encourage strong root growth and aid establishment.
