Cider Apple 'Slack ma Girdle' (Late)
This quirkily named traditional English cider apple originates from Devon and produces medium sized, greenish-yellow fruits with attractive crimson streaks and a wonderfully sweet flesh. It is normally combined with a bittersweet cider variety to make a blended cider, but can also be eaten fresh from the tree.
Cider apple trees are grafted on a MM106 semi-dwarfing rootstock and will reach an eventual height of 3.5-4.5m (10-15ft). Trees should be planted 3-4.5m (10-15ft) apart.
Cider 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.
