Cider Apple 'Tremletts Bitter' (Late)
This old English cider apple will make a full bodied bitter-sweet cider when used by itself, or alternatively can blended with another variety. The deep red, conical shaped fruits are high in tannin and simply drop to the ground when they ripen in mid October. It crops heavily and has an upright growing habit and good frost resistance.
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.
