This Fall Russet 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.
Fall Russet is an American apple, originally introduced in 1875 but was thought lost to cultivation until re-introduced in the 1950’s.
