Apple Tree D'arcy Spice (Very late)
This dessert apple was discovered in Colchester, Essex around 1785. It requires a hot dry summer to gain the spicy, almost nutmeg like flavour for which it is named. The fruit is richly aromatic, with a nice balance of sweetness and acidity.
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.
