What Is A Duo Apple Tree?
It is an apple tree whereby two apple trees are grafted onto one stem at an early age. It grows as a normal tree but you get the benefits of two trees for the price of one e.g. two different species of apple.

Worcester Pearmain (C3) And Fiesta (C3) Bare Root Duo Apple Tree
A great choice of Duo apple tree is you are looking for tasty and can grow anywhere in the UK. They will cross pollinate each other, both easy to grow, and low instances of disease. The short storage time of the Worcester Pearmain is the only downside but the taste more than makes up for that.

Worcester Pearmain
Such a great tree, the RHS gave it their Award Of Garden Merit and it is easy to see why. Comparatively trouble free, suitable for planting almost anywhere in the UK, good pollinator and good for eating and juicing.

The taste has been described as strong hints of strawberry by an apple enthusiast and very nice by some normal bloke with better things to be doing. The longer and hotter the Summer, the more of a strawberry taste you will experience. The different taste has made it a popular choice in UK gardens.

The great taste makes it worthwhile growing but the apples do not last that long. Pick in September and expect to store them until October.

In pollination group C3

Another outstanding tree with the RHS Award Of Garden Merit. Considered to be more disease and pest free than most other apple trees, suitable for growing almost anywhere in the UK, great for pollinating other apple trees and suitable for container growing.

Pick in October and should store well until January and should be good for juicing too.

Originating in the East Malling Research Centre by Dr Frank Alston in 1972. No need to be alarmed at the words research and Frank in the same sentence, the tree will not come alive and cause problems with the neighbours.

In pollination group C3.

Fruit Tree Heights
Taller does not mean more value for money. A 1 year old fruit tree can easily be substantially higher than a 2 year old, this is because they are hard pruned at 1 year old to create the desired shape. Some trees have over 100cm of height removed. They can then have another pruning at 2 years old to increase fruit growing real estate. Most fruit trees will benefit from having a third to half of the seasons new growth cut back in the Autumn to prevent long whippy branches which break easily. Age and pruning completed determine real value. 

Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.  

Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy. 

1 Year Maiden Bare Root Trees
If you plant a 1 Year maiden tree and do not prune it at all, it will grow a little more upright and have more clear stem

What Will Be Delivered?
The Duo apple trees are grafted onto MM106 rootstock giving a mature height of around 3.5m. They will be 1 year old maidens and will be in the region of 100 to 150 cm tall. If new to gardening, you will need to research "pruning maiden apple trees". 

The Benefits Of Duo Apple Trees.

Each species is usually chosen to compliment the other e.g with pollination, taste etc. It offers more variety in less space and reduced risk of a complete harvest failure. If the harvest times are staggered then it also means you have a longer period of fresh apples. If you have other apple trees then a Duo apple tree with 2 different flowering times .e.g a group 2 and 3 or a 3 and 4,  offer pollen for longer to those other trees which should increase apple harvest yields. Finally,  2 apple trees for the price of 1!.

Manchester And Below
Commercial apple orchards seem to thin out drastically once you go past Manchester. We have used this as a VERY rough guideline to establish where the cut off point is for sun hungry apple trees. You can still grow them North of there but best results become more unlikely. For a more accurate picture, have a look at a UK map of average sun hours.
