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

Kidds Orange red was raised in New Zealand, 1927 from a Cox’s Orange x Delicious cross. Quickly became popular in England and remains an oft-planted garden apple and a good alternative to Cox’s Orange that is easier to grow.
