Apple Tree - Sunset

Flowering Group : 3
Rootstock: M106 or M25
Size : Maiden
Harvest : September
Vigour : Medium
The best substitute for Cox's Orange Pippin in the North of England, Sunset is an apple tree of compact and tidy habit with the added attraction of very colourful blossom (some say it compares with Cherry). Firm and juicy, Sunset has a delicious flavour, is a regular cropper, and is resistant to frost.

We supply apple trees on the most vigorous rootstocks available. They 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 tall. 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 Sunset 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.
