Description

Sweet dessert apple variety producing bumper harvests of sweet, flavoursome fruits on garden-worthy trees.

'Little Pax' is a rich, aromatic dessert apple tree with a sweet flavour similar to honeydew melon and a subtle but lingering champagne-like quality. It has a firm, crunchy skin which gives way to a smooth, juicy flesh.

Each year 'Little Pax' produces an abundance of attractive mid-season spring flowers in pure white and delicate shades of pink. The flowers attract bees into the garden, making it an excellent pollinator-partner for other apple trees and it’s great for wildlife.

'Little Pax' develops a crop of rich reddish-pink apples with rose flecks and shades of soft yellow. As a late-season dessert apple, expect to be harvesting lovely fruit in October. This variety stores well too throughout the winter into spring.

Grown onto a M9 dwarfing rootstock, 'Little Pax' is the perfect choice for growing in a large container or direct in the soil in a garden of any size.

Partners with many other apple varieties for generous harvests;

A dessert-apple variety shrouded in mystery!

Not so long ago, one small tree – with no name and of unknown origin – was gifted to St Cecilia’s Abbey in Ryde on the Isle of Wight.

Benedictine nuns at the 19th century Abbey planted and nurtured this sapling in their beautiful and peaceful walled gardens overlooking the Solent. In this quiet and safe haven, the tree was able to flourish, and soon after produced the most stunning spring blossom, followed by a bumper harvest of exceptional apples in late autumn.

In recognition of the care and cultivation of the Benedictine nuns charitable donations from the sale of this mysterious yet magnificent variety will be contribute to the upkeep of St Cecilia’s Abbey in Isle of Wight.

Rootstock M9 dwarfing

Flowering group: FG3
