Apple Tree - Isaac Newton's Tree
Origin: Lincolnshire, 17th century
Apple Taste: Sweetly flavoured puree
Flowering Group : 3
Size : Maiden
Harvest : October
Vigour : Medium
The original Isaac Newton's tree is in Newton's garden at Woolsthorpe Manor in Lincolnshire, under which 'the notion of gravity came into his mind occasion'd by the fall of an apple'. It was propagated by the Revd Charles Turner in 1820. Over the years material has been retained by repropagation, and the Isaac Newton's trees we offer are - amazingly to my mind - direct descendants of the original Newton apple tree. It produces a distinctly ugly cooking apple, the 'Flower of Kent', which is quite shy to crop, but cooks to a sweet delicately flavoured puree. Isaac Newton's tree is only available in very limited numbers.

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.
Like all our apple trees, we offer Isaac Newton's Tree 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.
