Apple 'Bloody Ploughman' (Mid)
This dessert/cider variety takes its name from a ploughman who was shot whilst stealing apples from the Megginch estate in Scotland. The apples were thrown on a rubbish heap by his wife and one of the seedlings that emerged was subsequently named. The fruits are blood red, crisp and juicy. When very ripe, the flesh becomes stained pink.
'Bloody Ploughman' is grafted on a MM106 rootstock and will reach an eventual height of 3.5-4.5m (10-15ft) and a spread of 2.5-3.5m (8-12ft).
Bare rooted 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.
