Court Pendu Plat is one of our oldest apple trees. Hardy and compact in growth, with good disease resistance and a good cropper, some argue it was first identified by Roman writers including Pliny. Much confusion surrounds Pendu Plat's early history, and it has attracted a host of synonyms over the hundreds of years.

These rootstocks were created specifically for use in the UK and produce healthy, heavy cropping trees for our weather conditions. M106 produces a good garden sized apple tree, between 3 and 4 metres, which can also be trained into a fan, cordon or espalier. Grown as a free standing tree it won't need staking, although initially best to use a cane to support your new plant. M25 rootstock will produce the 4m plus standard trees of a traditional orchard, where they would be planted between 6 and 8 metres apart. Please refer to our size guide for details.
All our apple trees are bare root, including Pendu Plat. At the height of the lifting season there may be up to a month's delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders for Pendu Plat apple trees taken from March to September are confirmed in September ready for dispatch from November. Please note there is an overall minimum order size of £50.
