Medium to large glorious deep purple apples crop in November to produce quality cider apples. A self fertile tree, it is fairly vigorous with an upright spreading form and is a reliable heavy cropper with its harvest in November. Their bittersweet yet mellow flavour make it a mainstay of cider farmers, producing a quality cider without a mix from other apples.
Apple trees like sun and fertile well drained soil and are a source of food and shelter to birds, bees and wildlife.
Long associated with the Garden of Eden, the Apple together with the Poppy and the Myrtle is sacred to Aphrodite, the goddess of love. The Apple became the source of beauty, love and wisdom and all over the world the Apple is symbolic of the giving of love.
Symbolism: Apple, domestica
The apple has very similar associations with the quince. From Adam and Eve to the present day the apple has long been a symbol of love and romance, together with peace and happiness. In some legends, apples were the food of the gods and in the Celtic tradition apples were said to grow in Paradise.
The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
Please note the size of the tree that you are ordering, as our trees are provided for our clients to plant themselves, which may appear at a small size rather than the fully grown tree as shown in the photos.
