Mannington's Pearmain was a great favourite of the Victorians after it was sent to the London Horticultural Society in 1847 by John Mannington, a butcher in Sussex. His grandfather, a Mr. Turley, blacksmith of Uckfield, found the original tree in some cider pomace chucked under a hedge, around 1770. Mannington's Pearmain is now, sadly and inexplicably, a relatively rare Sussex apple. "Pearmain" as a description of an apple might have originally referred to its pear shape or the apple's keeping quality (from Old French parmaindre "to endure").

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.
All our Mannington's Pearmain 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.
