Bountiful Miniature M27 Apple Trees
This Bountiful apple tree is grown on miniature M27 stock. M27 is a rootstock that produces the smallest tree of all; maturing to around 180cm’s in height and width, this tree is ideal for a container or small garden, courtyard or allotment. It should be staked if in a windy or open position. Crops can exceed 20ibs per tree when established and this rootstock is quite precocious, often yielding the year following planting.
One of the best garden cookers, being fertile, easy to pollinate, trouble free and prolific. Bountiful apple tree was raised by EMRS Kent in 1964 from a cross between Cox’s Orange and Lanes Prince Albert.
