Organic Blenheim Orange Apple is an old favourite, producing large, flat round apples with a distinctive nutty flavour, dull red with a brown russet and golden coloured striped.
These dessert apples show good mildew resistance and their large size also makes them a good apple to use in cooking. Available in moderate vigour (MM106 Rootstock) and semi dwarfing (M26). Blenheim Orange is a Triploid variety in pollination group C so is pollinated by other apple trees but will not pollinate them.
Apples are ready for harvesting in early October and if stored correctly will last until January. Blenheim Orange Apple Trees are supplied with full siting, planting and training instructions.
Despatched in bare-root form between November and March.

Planting and Delivery Information
See our Guide to Successful Fruit Trees for more growing advice
Planting - do not attempt to plant your fruit trees when the ground is frozen or waterlogged. The trees can be stored in their packaging in an outbuilding or garage for 2-3 days, or can be heeled into the soil where the ground is not as frozen. Alternatively, plant up in large pots or containers and ensure the roots have good contact with the soil.
