This 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.
Court Pendu Plat is possibly one of the oldest known cultivars. A small little tree of European origin which was once favoured for orjamental potted display in Victorian gardens. The fruits are quite small but deliciously flavoured.
