Apple Tree - Bardsey Island

Origin: Bardsey Island, Llyn Peninsula, unknown
Apple Taste: cooks to a light golden fluff. Sweet to eat.
Type: Dual Purpose
Flowering Group : 2
Rootstock: M106
Size : Maiden (1-2 years old, around 100cm)
Harvest : Late September

This rare and interesting variety of apple tree was found on Bardsey Island, a lonely wind-swept island off the tip of the Llyn Peninsular. In 1999 a single gnarled old tree, probably planted in the 1870s, was discovered near the remains of a 13th century abbey; perhaps it was all that remained of a monastery orchard. On the island the tree is completely disease free. The apples have a lemon aroma, and will keep until November.


Supplier : Ian Sturrock & Sons

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. M106, or MM106, is the next sized rootstock, and will produce a good sized garden tree. Please refer to our size guide for details.
Like all our apple trees, we offer Bardsey Island 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.
