Apple : CANADIAN STRAWBERRY Large Semi-Dwarf  (B118)


55 in stock

In spite of it's name, this heirloom variety actually originated in Maine and was saved from extinction by John Bunker of Fedco Nursery. Here is how John describes this rare find: 'Beautiful, superb tasting dessert apple. Surprisingly juicy, distinctly tart, full-flavoured, medium-to-large, round conic fruit. Rich buttery-yellow skin overspread with a veil of vibrant red-orange. Very good early season cider.' Canadian Strawberry tops taste test trials on a regular basis. Plant with several other varieties as it is a triploid.


TRIPLOID- Plant with several other varieties.

G41 Dwarf
G935 Small Semi-Dwarf
G969 Small Semi-Dwarf
G30 Semi-Dwarf

Pollenator definitions
Some trees and many berry plants are SELF-FERTILE ̶means the insect pollinators or even the wind can pollinate the blossoms without the need of a second tree.
NEEDS A POLLENIZER ̶ means another tree of the same type or kind but a different variety must be blooming nearby at the same time.
EXAMPLE A Liberty apple and a Wealthy apple can cross-pollinate. Two trees of the same variety ie: ̶ 2 Wealthy apples, cannot cross pollinate because they are genetically identical.
Other trees are marked as SEMI-FERTILE. These will set fruit without a second tree. However they will often bear more, and sometimes larger fruit if another variety of the same kind of tree is nearby.
You can select 2 different trees of the same kind marked as NEEDS A POLLENIZER or plant one of those along with one SELF-FERTILE or one SEMI-FERTILE. Also consider ripening times ̶ a Goldrush apple might not start blooming before a Pristine is finished.
