Fruit from Organic Red Falstaff (R) Apple Trees is coloured bright red and as this popular dessert variety was only developed in 1986 at the legendary East Malling Research station in Kent, you can be sure it combines all the taste of a traditional, juicy dessert apple with heavy yields, good disease resistance and excellent storability.

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.
