Yellow Ingestrie is a hardy apple tree named after Lord Talbot's estate in Staffordshire, Ingestre. The Estate was sold in the 1960s and the Jacobean house and extensive gardens now a residential arts centre. The apple named after it by a Mr Knight is a cross between Orange Pippin (not Cox's Orange Pippin, but an earlier apple) and Golden Pippin. It's a beautiful, drooping, spreading tree, which often used to be grown in lawns for effect, particularly in the North. Yellow Ingestrie's apples are small, decorative, and yellow, yellowing more over time.

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 Yellow Ingestrie 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.
