Discovery Apple Tree 4-5ft, Ready to Fruit, Crisp,Juicy, Strawberry Taste


Discovery Apple Tree, 4-5ft Tall


 These are BARE ROOTED plants which can be planted from the end of October until April and will be dispatched as soon as the weather turns cold and they become dormant.The dispatch date depends on the Autumn temperature and varies from year to year.


Discovery is a good apple tree for the garden, being fairly easy to grow. Having your own tree also means that you can enjoy the apples at their best, which is often not the case with shop-bought examples.


Growing Details:

Common Name: Apple
Genus: Malus
Species: domestica
Cultivar: 'Discovery'
Skill Level: Beginner
Exposure: Full sun
Hardiness: Hardy
Soil type: Well-drained/light, Clay/heavy, Acidic, Chalky/alkaline

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.



It is not self-fertile and needs a pollination partner:

Braeburn, Cornish Aromatic, Egremont Russet, Ellison's Orange, Elstar, Fiesta, Gala, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, Greensleeves, Grenadier, Howgate Wonder, Idared, Irish Peach, James Grieve, Laxton's Superb, Malus Evereste, Malus John Downie, Pitmaston Pine Apple, Spartan

    Decided to dig up the Spinosa I'd been grafting apple scions onto and, get a proper apple tree. This little beauty arrived WITHIN SEVEN MINUTES of the promised time, in perfect condition. She now sits near the Greengage awaiting the Spring. Thank you! Best&Kindest, JXC
