The fabulous quality of Orleans Reinette's apples more than compensates for slightly irregular cropping. Always popular in Europe, but not widely grown in the UK until the early 1900s when it was promoted by Edward Bunyard. Orleans Reinette has many synonyms, including the one he originally used, Winter Ribston.

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.
All our Orleans Reinette apple trees are bare root. 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 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.
