Fiesta (AKA Red Pippin) Eating Apple (BARE ROOT)

The Fiesta (Red Pippin) eating apple tree is the product of some well thought out and recent breeding/cultivation from the East Malling Research Station in Kent. Taking the strong flavour qualities from the Cox's Orange Pippin and the fruit longevity from the Idared (its parents), you have an easy to grow tree that provides great tasting, crisp Apples that you do not have to eat within minutes of picking. In ideal conditions, you could store these apples for several months or more although some of the sweetness disappears.  

The Fiesta (Red Pippin) eating apple tree also provides Apples that have quite a high juice content, so if you are into juicing the fruits of your trees then this is a good choice especially as the Fiesta is a heavy cropping tree.  Obviously heavy cropping means it provides many flowers for the bees and other insects and another plus point is that is has reasonable resistance to mildew and scab.

Should you be short of space, the Fiesta Apple Tree (AKA Red Pippin) is also good for growing in containers for the patio or just to retrict growth in general. Smaller rootstocks such as M27 do particularly well in standard sized containers e.g. 20 litres. If you are considering using larger rootstocks such as MM06, consider using around a 30-40 litre sized container. Bigger is better if you have any doubts.

Although very easy to grow and very tolerant of adverse conditions in the North UK (weather that is, not socio-economic political tensions or reluctance to give up steam power) it tends to grow as much, if not more, outwards as skywards.

If attracting bees and other pollinating insects is important to you then the Fiesta (Red Pippin) is a rich source of attractants.

Bare Root Apple Tree Jargon Explained
The options we give you when selecting an Apple tree are made up of the following terms. 

  M25 Mature height around 4.5 + metres, slower to reach full fruit production but much more of it.  
  MM106 Mature height of around 3.6 metres, slower to reach full fruit production but more of it compared to M9, M26 and M27.  
  M9 Grows to a final height of around 2.5 metres. Reaches full fruiting potential quite quickly.  
  M26 Grows to a final height of around 3.0 metres. Reaches full fruiting potential quite quickly.  
  M27 Grows to a final height of around 1.5 metres. Reaches full fruiting potential quickly.  
  Straight Lead 1m or clear trunk i.e. no branches    
  Cordon Pruned to produce apples very quickly (1-3 years), favoured with commercial growers. More columnar than round shape. Less of a harvest compared to MM106.  
  Bush Clear stem of 45cm before branches grow out. A vase like shape with an open centre.   
  Half Standard Clear stem of  around 1 m. Conventional tree shape e.g. lollipop,  allowing easy grass mowing or companion planting.  
  Maiden 1-2 years old, no pruning or shaping has taken place. A blank slate for you to shape and train e.g. fan or espalier. Not advisable to plant and leave, will need pruning for 2 more years.   
  Patio Ideal for container growing. Usually comes with a root stock that keeps the fruit tree quite small so can be grown in pots.  
  Self Fertile Will produce fruit without another apple tree nearby.  
  C1,C2,C3,C4,C5 If your apple tree is NOT SELF FERTILE (they will be listed if 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 Root Available 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.  
  1 or 2 Year How old the tree is. The roots are usually 2 years older than the rest of the tree.  
  TRIPLOID You 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.  

Planting A Maiden Apple Tree And Leaving
The tree will grow but will likely have problems. You may have long thin branches that snap under the weight of a heavy apples crop, the foliage could become too dense trapping moisture and allowing disease in and it may have an odd unbalanced shape to it. We strongly advise pruning for 3 years. Have a look on Youtube for pruning maiden fruit trees.  
   
Bare Root Apple Tree Ages And Heights
Heights vary depending on root stock however 1.25 to 2 metres tall is an average apple tree height at delivery.

Bareroot 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 (minimum 30 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.
