James Grieve has apples that are almost full yellow, slightly flushed and red striped; they are very juicy and have a pleasant, crisp, sweet flavour. It grows well in the North and gives a good performance on nearly all types of soil except that canker can develop on the poor soils. James Grieve is probably the best September dessert apple, very prolific and much loved. The flowers are fairly resistant to frost damage. A good pollinator. James Grieve is one of our most popular apple trees, for good reason.

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 James Grieve 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 James Grieve 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.
