Stepover trees are used primarily for edging a border or pathway or to divide the kitche/vegetable garden. These very tiny trees are just 18” in height with two side laterals from the main stem forming a capital ‘T’ shape. The stepover tree is an ormamental addition to your garden and these trees are grown on the smallest avaailable rootstock, M27. Plant 120-150cm’s apart

Syn ‘Laxtons Fortune’ Often reffered to as an early Cox, this Bedfordshire introduction was introduced in 1931 from a Cox’s cross. It is a popular garden apple and well worth growing to have that Cox-type flavour so early in the season.

Harvest early September, for eating through September and into early October.

Fortune apple trees – flavour:
