 Fiesta Apple / Malus Domestica 'Fiesta' 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.

 

Fiesta is a medium-sized apple, with the characteristic flecked red and orange flush over yellow - a very attractive autumnal colouring.  It is crisper than Cox, and in some ways a more accessible easier-eating apple than its parent. It is also quite juicy and is a very good variety for making your own apple juice from.

Description:

A blushing red and yellow beauty of an apple, with a fine flavour and crunchy flesh, the Fiesta is one of the best offspring of the famous Cox's Orange Pippin and, unlike its parent, is easy to grow. Basically a sweet tasting apple, Fiesta has preserved some of the subtle blend of flavours that make Cox so great, though it can't really be called a substitute. They juice well and are good for storage - after picking in late September, Fiesta Apples last into the new year without too much loss of flavour.

Being partially self-fertile, you can get away with not having a pollination partner, though your crop size will suffer a bit. Fiesta is a mid-late season flowerer and can cross pollinate with any tree in the mid or late season categories.
