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

William Crump is thought to have originated in Worcestershire in the 1800’s. This old variety has recently received a new lease of life and is once again being planted in gardens and orchards. It is quite late and very well flavoured. Another Cox x Worcester cross.
