All our bare root Bountiful cooking and eating apples have good resistance to disease Our bare root Bountiful apple trees also have Chuck Norris characteristics e.g. tough enough to keep their shape when cooked making them ideal as toppings for pies. They are also quite crispy.

It is a very modern apple tree, not because it has the latest mobile phone, talks to adults in a language only other young apple trees can understand and grunts at you as it walks past you but because it was bred by the East Malling Research Station in the 1960's.

Bountiful Apple trees are also good for growing in most parts of the UK because they tolerate most of our extremes of weather. This of course excludes "The Day After Tomorrow" tidal waves, wind speeds measured by warp factors and frost temperatures only found in the vacuum of space. If any of this sounds like the West coast of Scotland then that was no accident.

Bare Root Apple Tree Jargon Explained

The options we give you when selecting an Apple tree are made up of the following terms. 

 M25Grows to a final height of around 4.5 + metres 
 MM106Grows to a final height of around 3.6 metres. 
 M9Grows to a final height of around 2.5 metres. 
 M26Grows to a final height of around 3.0 metres. 
 M27Grows to a final height of around 1.5 metres. 
 Straight Lead1m or clear trunk i.e. no branches   
 CORDONPruned to produce apples very quickly (1-3 years), favoured with commercial growers. More columnar than round shape. Less of a harvest compared to MM106. 
 BUSHClear stem of 45cm before branches grow out. 
 HALF STANDARDClear stem of 1 m. Conventional tree shape allowing easy grass mowing or companion planting. 
 MAIDEN1-2 years old, no pruning or shaping has taken place. A blank slate for you to shape and train. 
 PATIOShaped and/or with appropriate rootstock to produce compact bush proportional for pot size, ideal for container growing. 
 SELF FERTILEWill produce fruit without another apple tree nearby. 
 C1,C2,C3,C4,C5If your apple tree is NOT SELF FERTILE (they will be listed f they are) then you will need a second apple tree nearby of a similar number i.e. the same or one above or one below. So an apple tree from a C3 requires a C2, C3 or C4 planted close by for it to produce fruit. Triploids are an exception, see below. 
 Bare RootAvailable from November to March only. Comes with no pot or dirt around roots and is cheaper than potted options. Orders purchased outside this time will be held for delayed delivery until the next season starts. 
 TRIPLOIDYou have a selfish tree. It will be pollinated by other trees but the pollen it has to offer is useless. See TRIPLOID POLLINATION for more information. 

Apple Tree Ages and heights

All our apple trees have been pruned and shaped to get the best results and are inspected by an apple tree expert before being sent to you. Maiden apple trees are 1-2 years old, the rest are 2-3 years old. Heights vary depending on root stock however 1.5 to 2+ metres tall is an average apple tree height at delivery.

Bare Root Season 

All bare root plants need to be planted between November and March whereas our containerised apple trees can be planted all year round. Height can be restricted by pruning or putting the apple tree in a container to restrict growth (around 30-40 litres, smaller the pot, smaller the tree will be)

Select the root stock you desire from the list above or if you are unsure, telephone us on 0800 043 1057 or use the enquiry page.


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.  

All Our Trees Are Grown In The UK
As far as we know, none of our trees have sneaked off for holidays abroad and so are UK Grown.
