Description

  • Grow in isolation- you still get a good crop of fruit
  • Grow in a bed or large pot to suit
  • Perfect for eating or juicing

Enjoy the harvests of apple Elstar producing fruit that has the perfect sweet and sharp balance, delicious to eat straight from the tree or juiced for thirst-quenching home-made apple juice.

Elstar produces heavy, regular crops of apples which are greenish-yellow, flushed with red. The flavour and texture are honeyed and crisp with a satisfying bite.

We recommend that you grow your Elstar tree near other fruit and fruiting vegetables like tomatoes for optimum flower pollination and increase the chances of all flowers setting to fruit.

Grown on roots to restrict their height to 1.2m (4ft) when fully grown, they produce lots of fruit at a height for easy-picking.

This 2 year old specimen is NOT self fertile and will require another pollinator in the same flowering group as Elstar, group 3.

During summer delivery, our plants may exhibit signs of nature's hustle and bustle on their leaves. Since we have a high concentration of plants on the nursery, a variety of insects are drawn to them as a source of food and nutrition. We feel that this is all part of gardening and have to strike a balance between keeping the plants healthy for our customers and not interfering too much with natural lifecycles.

We try to use as many natural methods of control as possible and only intervene as a last resort. So you may see some leaves that are discoloured or with small areas where the insects have been eating them. Any high levels of damage or attack will have been dealt with prior to delivery and plants graded out as best as possible when selected for packing. No plants will be delivered with damage that will affect the future growth or success of harvest.

If you can't plant up your fruit tree straight away we recommend that you keep your potted plant in a sunny position and keep the soil moist by watering each day. Look to planting into its permanent position within 5-7 days.

How to Guide

Aftercare

How your plants arrive

You receive our apple trees as young specimens at around 28in tall, growing strongly and sturdily and primed to produce lots of apples for you.

They arrive as a main stem studded with buds with lots of growing potential in spring.

The roots are covered in a pot in a polythene bag to keep the roots perfectly humid while transported from our nursery to your home.

When they first go in the ground, it’s their roots that really get growing; you won’t see this as it’s all happening underground. Once spring turns into summer those roots will promote lots of green growth above the soil.
