Description:

This upright, spreading tree is covered in pure white, cup-shaped flowers in mid and late spring, followed by crisp, juicy, red dessert apples. The tree forms a natural dome shape, and the leaves are small, toothed and dark green. Discovery apples are best eaten straight off the tree from mid August.

Keep the base of the tree weed free, fertilise at the beginning of each year and water regularly during hot, dry spells. Remove damaged or crossing branches during the dormant season.
