Rootstock: M106

William Crump is one of the very best eating apples there is, and rates as one of Monty Don's favourite apples of all time. Its apples are rich and crisp without being sweet - delicious. Its parents are Cox's Orange Pippin and Worcester Pearmain, so perhaps it's not surprising. William Crump is helpful too insofar as it's a late season variety, but the trees do need space as they're very vigorous.


Supplier : R.V. Roger Ltd.
We donate half of our profit on sales of William Crump apple trees to Common Ground

See our section on Pollination Groups to help you select your apple trees.
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 William Crump 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 William Crump 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.
