This Is Considered An Easy Apple Tree, For More Easy Apple Trees Click Easy Apples
This is because it is SELF FERTILE and can be planted by itself and still produce apples. This means you can pretty much plant these where ever you like. Usual exceptions apply such as submarine window box and active volcano orchards.
Red Falstaff Apple Tree Click The Link For Cheaper Bare Root Red Falstaff
Red Falstaff (Malus domestica 'Red Falstaff') was introduced in 1983 and is another one of those apple trees that has a lot going for it which makes it one of our more popular. It is a wonderful eating apple with a fruity well balanced flavour, that is crisp and suitable for juicing because of the amount of juice in the apple.
Of key importance for some areas of the United Kingdom is its frost resistance and being self fertile menas only one apple tree is required for a relaible crop of apples. One of the heaviest yielding varieties we are able to offer and the Red Falstaff crop may be easily stored over the winter period.
Well suited for patio container growing. Considered disease resistant and by this we don't mean will never catch chicken pox, it is actually resistant to many apple tree diseases compared to its apple colleagues. As it yields a lot of fruit, it follows that it bears a lot of flowers and these of course attract more wildlife to your garden and act as pollinators.
We highly recommend this variety.
Month of Picking: Early October, stores well untill March
Self-fertile/Not self-fertile: This apple is self fertile, so there is no need for an additional apple tree to ensure pollination
This apple is in flowering period is C3.

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.
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 unless the plant is very hardy.
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.
