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 Jonagold is M9 which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart.

Jonagold is a very important variety commercially, and one of the better supermarket apples. Raised in the U.S.A in 1968 from a Jonathan x Golden Delicious cross. It soon spread globally and is grown all over Europe and has received an Award of Garden Merit from the R.H.S.
