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 Scrumptious is M9 which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart
Scrumptious is a new arrival from Kent and so good it sells out each year. The flavour is superb, very much in the old style, complex and full of nuances. Scrumptious is also self-fertile so a valuable addition to the list of apples which can grow on their own. Highly recommended.
