Organic Bountiful Apple is a good alternative culinary apple to the traditional Bramley, a more compact grower, Bountiful is suitable for smaller gardens and responds well grown in restricted forms.
The tree is diploid so is a good pollinator of other apples and is a trouble free, heavy cropping variety. Bountiful produces large apples which are 'sub acid' meaning they require little or no sugar and can even be eaten as a dessert apple by late winter. The pale green skin is striped with orange red.
Bountiful is a relative newcomer being bred from Cox crossed with Lane's Prince Albert at East Malling Research Station in the early 1960's. Available in moderate vigour (MM106 Rootstock) and semi dwarfing (M26 Rootstock), Bountiful can be harvested from late September and can be stored until January. The trees are supplied with full siting, planting and training instructions.
Despatched in bare-root form between November and March.

Planting and Delivery Information

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.
