Espalier or fan trees are used against a wall; you will need not less than 180 x 180cm’s for a fan or espalier tree. Please note we do not supply ready trained trees; this Pixie apple  tree is a young tree suitable for training yourself, in situ. Such trees usually settle to cropping within 2 or 3 seasons.

Selected at RHS Gardens Wisley in 1947, probably a Cox’s or Sunset seedling and considered superior to either parent. The name refers to the size of the apples, which are small, not the growth.
