Edward VII cordon Apple trees
Cordon Apple trees are a good choice for restricted areas and a fence or wall. They can be grown at a 45degree angle, or upright. The rootstock we use for our cordon is M9 which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart.
A Blenheim Orange x Golden Noble cross in 1902 produced this very late cooker which sotres very well and gives season-extending qualiy culinary apples deep into the Spring. Worcestershire origins.
