Perfect for small spaces or patio pots, this apple will perform just as well as any other, but in an incredibly compact form!
'Bolero' is a Ballerina apple tree, grown to be naturally columnar in shape and almost without branches. As this is achieved by breeding instead of pruning, the tree will maintain its upright shape without the need for skilled pruning or training. 'Bolero' apples are sweet, crisp and juicy, medium sized, and ready to pick from September. Ideal for eating fresh or for cooking, this is a wonderful way to grow your own apples!
Reaching just 2m in height after 5 years, Ballerina 'Bolero' is so easy to harvest as the apples naturally occur on small spurs close to the main stem instead of on branches. As well as being a productive fruit tree, it makes a spectacular ornamental tree when grown in a large pot, superb as a patio plant and wonderful displayed either side of a doorway or garden gate where you can really appreciate their lovely pink flushed, white spring blossom followed by a good crop of juicy apples.
Supplied as a bare root tree, ready to plant, growing to 2m in 5 years.
