Apple Tree 'Ribston Pippin' (Late)
This late dessert variety was highly prized in Victorian times. It was discovered at Ribston Hall near Knarlesborough, Yorkshire and it is thought to have been raised from a pip c1707. The fruits are sweet and juicy with an aromatic flavour, slightly reminiscent of pear drops. Triploid (will not act as a pollinator).
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.
