The original Peasgood's Nonsuch apple tree was raised by one Emma Manby. When she was 16, in 1860, she planted 5 apple pips in her garden in Grantham. One survived, and she took the tree with her when she married draper John Peasgood and moved to Stamford (rather later John Peasgood went bust before reinventing himself as an organiser of exhibitions). History doesn't relate what Emma felt about her apple being Peasgood rather than Manby.

Anyway, her new variety fruited so spectacularly it won various prizes and was quickly taken up by Laxtons nursery. It doesn't seem that she made much money out of its great success. After a life spent living in Lincoln and then around London bringing up three children, Emma died in 1935, in Hove. 

Her apple is a pretty tree, popular as a garden and exhibition variety in 19th century and now grown across northern Europe. One of the reasons for Peasgood's Nonsuch being so enduring is its handsome large apples. 

Supplier : R.V. Roger Ltd.

See our section on Pollination Groups to help you select your apple trees.
We supply apple trees, including Peasgood's Nonsuch, 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 apple 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.
