This Greensleeves 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
Greensleeves is one of the best and most popular garden apple trees; Greensleeves was introduced in 1977 from EMRS in Kent, and is a cross between James Grieve x Golden Delicious. In character it resembles a better version of the latter.
