Newton Wonder is one of the very best cooking apples available, and deserves a place in any fruit garden or orchard. The original seedling was said to be found growing in a gutter at the Hardinge Arms at King's Newton, around 1870. Newton Wonder's bark is unusually smooth, and its fruit very large and colourful, with yellow flesh heavily flushed with scarlet. Hardy and tolerant of late frosts. Newton Wonder is a heavy cropper but can be biennial; although this tendency has led to its being planted less and less, it won an RHS AGM in 1993.

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, around 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 6m 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 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.
