Alfriston is a heavy cropping apple tree widely grown and admired by the Victorians.

Alfriston's large and attractive bright green oblong apples keep well and are best thinned in June.

Your purchase helps us support a range of charities, which are related to the products we sell.

See our section on Pollination Groups to help you select your apple trees.
The rootstock for all our apple trees is the most vigorous available. We try to offer as many apple varieties as we can on M25 rootstock, which will produce the standard trees of a traditional orchard, where they would be planted between 6 and 8 metres apart. MM106, or M106, produces a good sized garden tree. Please refer to our size guide for details.
Like all our apple trees, we offer Alfriston 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.
