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 Spartan apple tree is a young tree suitable for training yourself, in situ. Such trees usually settle to cropping within 2 or 3 seasons.

Spartan has been enormously popular in the UK for so many years it might come as a surprise to learn that this is actually an American apple, raised 1926 from a Mc Intosh cross. One of the top 10 most satisfactory garden or orchard apples.
