Laxtons Superb Apple Tree

An old fashioned English apple variety, Laxton's Superb (Malus domestica 'Laxton's Superb') is the end result of a cross between the apple varieties Wyken Pippin x Cox's Orange Pippin, and first introduced in 1897. A sweet and aromatic apple possessing similar characteristics as Cox's Orange Pippin. The apples are flushed with red stripes, which tend to give them a somewhat old-fashioned appearance.

Laxton's Superb can sometimes only produce apples bienally (every second year). This is because it uses all its resources to make the blossoms and fruits in one year and does not have enough reserves to make blossoms the next year. To get round this issue, remove 25% -50% of the blossom in April/May time on the year that it is due to crop heavily. Choose the blooms closest to the trunk, those that look weak etc. This should then even out the crops to two smaller ones over two years instead of one heavy one every 2.

It is a very hardy apple variety, so well-suited to the colder areas of the United Kingdom.

Month of Picking: October

Type of Apple: Eating

Self-fertile/Not self-fertile: This apple is not self-fertile and requires another apple to act as a pollination partner.

See What Our Customers Are Saying About Our Laxtons Superb Apple Trees

September 2013: Hi Alan, Thanks for the e-mail. Yes, very pleased with the 4 fruit trees which all arrived in one piece, in the right place at the right time. They are now safely growing as cordons against (or rather near) my newly pained back wall. The cardboard from the decent packaging is now on my compost heap. The Prunus Serrula that I bought in August is also flourishing in my front garden. Very pleased with the service, the descriptions and the trees themselves. Regards Pat Dauncey

Quick Fruit Tree Links
Take a look at our 
TOP SELLING FRUIT TREES, Wet ground issues then choose a PEAR TREE first, followed by APPLE TREES. For more information on pollination please look at  POLLINATION EXPLAINED or choosing the CORRECT POLLINATION PARTNER

Fruit Tree Life Expectancy
Most fruit trees will give you AT LEAST 40 years of fruit. Pears can go to 70. Records of 200 year old trees exist but this is the exception, not the rule.

Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Fruit 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. 

Growing Our Trees In The UK
To date, we have checked the passports of our trees and none seem to have sneaked off for non UK holidays so all are UK grown.

Climate Change 
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy.

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. 

Apple Tree Jargon Explained

 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. 
 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. Blank slate for you to shape and train. 
 PATIOShaped to produce compact bush proportional for pot size, ideal for container growing. 
 (12L), (3L) etcThe size of the pot measured in litres. 
 SELF FERTILE Will 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 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.  
 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.
