Reduced price trees when available are smaller one year old trees or two year old trees which have less well developed heads than our regular trees but are otherwise perfectly good healthy trees offered at a lower price.

History and description of Jumbo

Jumbo is a new variety bred by Hugh Ermen from a cross between Charles Ross and Jonathan. Very large fruit. Flushed and striped red on pale green background with a deep red flush and attractive red flecks. Golden cream flesh. Good storage until March. Jumbo is a dual purpose apple but is particularly good for baking as it retains its colour. For eating fresh it has a good acidic aromatic flavour. Cropping is heavy and early trials have shown good disease resistance. It is a triploid and as such fairly vigorous and also unsuitable as a pollinator.
