Nonpareil was traditionally introduced from France by a Jesuit in the 16th century, although its first documentary record dates from 1696, in London. Grown in a sunny spot for the sugars to form fully, this ancient variety of apple tree can produce outstandingly-well flavoured fruit. Highly prized throughout the C18th and C19th, Nonpareil was often grown in pots and used as a decorative feature in parterres, as the fruit hangs on the tree for a long time.

The rootstock for all our apple trees is the most vigorous available. We try to offer as many apple varieties as we can on M25 rootstock, which will produce the 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.
