Apple tree ‘Red Spur Delicious‘ - Bare-rooted

Malus domestica 'Red Spur Delicious'
Small tree with large apples
A small and compact apple tree? That's the apple tree ‘Red Spur Delicious‘! The apple tree might remain small, but it produces big fruit that is nice and sweet. We grow fresh applies in the garden. Alternatively, it can be planted in a large pot on a patio, roof terrace or balcony.We supply the apple tree ‘Red Spur Delicious‘ as bare-root stock — just the bare branch and roots. The branch is freshly removed from the soil. This gives it additional strength, enabling it to branch out faster than it would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They grow better and they're more economical.The fruit tree blossoms in spring. That's when it reveals its lovely white-pink flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting. We prune the apple tree in winter, provided that it isn't frozen. The ‘Red Spur Delicious‘ grows in well-drained soil that we keep nice and moist. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth, which is why we plant the fruit tree in full or half sun.

Planting+

Prepare a suitably sized hole in good, loose soil for your Malus domestica 'Red Spur Delicious. Plant the patio apple at the right depth in the planting hole - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole with soil and heel well in. Water immediately after planting. This patio apple tree grows best in a sunny spot.

Potted patio apple tree

This small apple tree grows perfectly in a pot. The tree takes up little space but produces apples just as big as on a normal sized apple tree. Stand your patio apple 'Red Spur Delicious' in a sunny, sheltered spot.

Care+

The patio apple tree 'Red Spur Delicious' is easy to grow. Just water it regularly. Are you growing your patio apple tree in a container? Then never let the pot dry out. Early in the year, we recommend some fertiliser with low nitrogen (N) and high potassium (K) content.

Pruning a patio apple tree

This young tree requires regular pruning to ensure a good shape. Keep 5 main branches per tree. In January, the new shoots on a mature tree can be pruned back by half. Do not prune when there is frost around.

Extra+

A patio apple tree is a slow grower and therefore takes up little space. To ensure fruiting, plant the patio apple tree close to another variety for pollination. By doing this you are assured of fruiting. The fruit can be picked in October and November. Did you know that the apple is part of the rose family? Look closely at the beautiful white blossoms and you'll be sure to see the resemblance to a single-flowering rose.
