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.

Red Pippin - Syn ‘Fiesta’ Red Pippin is a relatively new English apple, developed in Kent in the 1970s but with a very traditional English style and flavour. Cox's Orange Pippin is one of its parents, and it has inherited the classic Cox aromatic sweet/sharp flavour, although not quite quite as complex as that esteemed variety. A much better groiwer and a much better garden apple than Cox’s.
