Growing Calendar for Apple Pixie Bare Root Fruit Tree
Delivery: Early November to Late April
Pixie is a small apple but has big flavour and both tastes and looks similar to Cox, a possible parent. Refreshing and sharp flavour but not acidic, with a crisp, juicy texture. Because of its size it is not grown commercially, which is a shame because the flavour is excellent.
However it is a good performer on smaller roots stocks like the ones we grow on, making it ideal for smaller spaces and perfect for gardens.
It’s easy to crops and grows well with little effort, having resistance to scab and mildew. Pixie is a late season variety and can be harvested mid-October and can be eaten straight from the tree or stored. If you like Cox you will enjoy Pixie.
