Apple Tree 'Tickled Pink' (Baya® - 'Marisa') (mid/late)
This dramatic red dessert apple is certainly striking, with a vivid reddish-pink flesh that is coloured right through to the centre. Tickled Pink is not only delicious picked straight from the tree, but if sliced would make a stunning addition to a fruit salad, or if picked early is ideal for cooking and making into an attractive pink centred apple tart or pie. This heavy cropping variety produces medium sized apples that are crisp and juicy with a good balance of sweetness and acidity. It is also worth growing for its ornamental qualities, displaying spectacular, large, reddish-violet blossoms and foliage in the spring. Showing some resistance to scab, it is suitable for growing throughout the U.K.
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.
