An 'orchard grade' is a tree that may be on the shorter side, may be crooked or with slight damage. These trees will still produce the very same fruit as a first or number 1 will. They may need to be staked and they do need regular watering, fertilizer and protection from weeds and hungry animals. All trees will benefit from pruning.
This fine, early season, dessert apple was developed in Japan, combining some of the best features of both it's parents - Gala and Akane. Beautiful, bright red, conical fruit with crisp, juicy, creamy yellow flesh delivers the desirable Gala flavour, with significant scab and fireblight resistance coming through from the Akane side. We are offering Sansa on our largest rootstock as it is known for being a less vigorous growing tree. This translates to 'less pruning required'. Select Sansa for sweet snacking in sunny September.
