Properties and uses:
The apple tree should really be your first choice if you decide to plant some fruit trees. It is at home in all types of soil, as long as they are not too dry.
It flowers in the springtime producing small bunches of pinkish white flowers. They are followed by the fruits. Then all you have to do is wait for the harvest, before you can bite into your apples.
Apple trees need a pollinator of a different variety in order to bear fruits. The crab apple 'Evereste' is a good pollinator for all apple trees.
Finally, it is important to keep a regular look out for diseases, an annual prune and feed is also needed to ensure a good crop.
The 'Calville Rouge d'hiver' red apple is not too acidulous and has a slight raspberry flavour, the white flesh with a tinge of reddish pink is of excellent quality. It is ripe in October, but we advise you to wait until November to enjoy it.
This apple tree is particularly resistant to scab and can be planted in altitude.

Plant them now: the shortest way to your plate is through your garden!
