This cooking 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.

Jumbo is a recent introduction to the range of Culinary apple trees, and a good garden variety. The fruits can attain huge size and have very versatile qualities.
