Apple : TRENT Semi-Dwarf (G969)


8 in stock

Introduced in 1979, this disease resistant selection from Trenton, ON has largely remained unknown. Some U-pick setups, especially organic ones such as Avalon Orchards, find they can never produce enough to satisfy their loyal customers who insist on Trent. A touch of mild, pleasant, pear flavour comes through in the firm, very crisp, cream-coloured flesh of this large, dark red apple. Storage is excellent. Organic growers also appreciate it's exceptional insect resistance which is possibly due to it's slightly thicker skin.

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.
