Pig Skin is more likely than not a sport of Egremont Russet, with very pretty colourful apples. The fruit's rough, russeted skin lends its name to the variety and means it keeps well.

We donate half of our profit on sales of Pig Skin apple trees to Common Ground

See our section on Pollination Groups to help you select your apple trees.
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.
Like all our apple trees, we offer Pig Skin apple trees 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.
