Apple trees - early varieties
These varieties of apple tree are the earliest to ripen and are of great value in any planting programme because they will give you early fruits, before the main apple tree season gets underway.
Early apple varieties can ripen from late July, and through August. They are generally unsuited to long-term storage but the fresh picked flavour of these early dessert apple trees can be very fine and refreshing indeed. You can often enjoy the early apple tree varieties straight from the tree. They often are highly coloured and attractive too.
The varieties in the early dessert section will ripen between late July and early September.
