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.

Harvest Jonagold mid October, keeps in store until February or sometimes later with care.

Jonagold - appearance:

At it’s best an attractive apple, although colouring can be variable. Pale green yellow, an oval apple variably covered by a bright orange red flush. Flesh is very crisp and cream.

Firm and juicy with a wonderful crispy bite. Plenty oif juice, plenty of sugar but with a satisfying light underlying acidity to give it balance. Very enjoyable to eat.
