This Jonagold 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.
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.
