Apple tree ‘Sweet Summer‘ - Bare-rooted - Tree

Malus - domestica - 'Sweet Summer'
Description:
A sweet summer. That's what we get with the deliciously sweet apples from the ‘Sweet Summer‘. The unique apple tree bears apples that ripen over a period of approximately eight weeks until we see the yellow/orange fruits appear! Great for in the garden, on a patio, roof terrace or balcony.We supply the apple tree ‘Sweet Summer‘ 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 apple tree 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+
An apple tree will thrive in fertile garden soil. Do improve poor soil with a mix of well-rotted manure and garden compost. Plant the tree in a spot in full sun.
An apple tree really does thrive in a garden. Soak this tree's roots in a bucket of lukewarm water overnight prior to planting. Dig a large hole and loosen the soil thoroughly with a fork. Plant your apple tree at the right depth and spread the roots around the hole - they should be around 15-25 cm below soil level. Place a support stake firmly into the ground next to the roots. Fill the hole with soil and heel the tree well in. Water generously immediately after planting.
Care+
We advise a mulch of compost and granulated cow manure around the trunk of the tree in the winter. Water extra during dry spells. Thin out the fruits in August by removing the smallest apples so that all the energy goes to the largest fruit. The apples can be harvested from October.
