Apple Tree - William Crump

William Crump is one of the very best eating apples there is, and rates as one of Monty Don's favourite apples of all time. Its apples are rich and crisp without being sweet - delicious. Its parents are Cox's Orange Pippin and Worcester Pearmain, so perhaps it's not surprising. William Crump is helpful too insofar as it's a late season variety, but the trees do need space as they're very vigorous.

Crump - who bred the apple - was one of the top gardeners of his time, and recipient of the Victorian Medal of Honour. He ended up as Head Gardener as Madresfield Court, where he also bred the Madresfield Court grape. Less interestingly, to my mind.


Supplier : R.V. Roger Ltd.

See our section on Pollination Groups to help you select your apple trees.
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 William Crump apple trees are bare root, so they are only available between November and April. During lifting season, there will be a delay between placing the order and dispatching due to pressure of orders, which are dealt with in date sequence, and the weather. Orders taken from June-October will be confirmed in late October/ early November after a nursery stock take, for dispatch from November. Please consult our planting and care guide on receipt of your order.

 

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