Growing Calendar for Patio Apple Tree - Elstar 2L
Delivery: Early September to Early June
Enjoy the harvests of apple Elstar producing fruit that has the perfect sweet and sharp balance, delicious to eat straight from the tree or juiced for thirst-quenching home-made apple juice.
Elstar produces heavy, regular crops of apples which are greenish-yellow, flushed with red. The flavour and texture are honeyed and crisp with a satisfying bite.
We recommend that you grow your Elstar tree near other fruit and fruiting vegetables like tomatoes for optimum flower pollination and increase the chances of all flowers setting to fruit.
Grown on roots to restrict their height to 1.2m (4ft) when fully grown, they produce lots of fruit at a height for easy-picking.
This 2-year old specimen is self-fertile and will provide a notable crop of fruit in its second year.
If you can't plant up your fruit tree straight away we recommend that you keep your potted plant in a sunny position and keep the soil moist by watering each day. Look to planting into its permanent position within 5-7 days.
