Product Information

A wonderful new variety of apple, ‘Elshard’ is an offspring of the venerable Golden Delicious, so you know for sure that is has excellent heritage!

This versatile variety is deliciously juicy and crunchy eaten straight from the tree, and has a tasty, honeyed sweetness balanced against noticeably acidic notes making it a great choice for cooking – superb in cakes, crumbles and desserts. Although self-fertile, cross-pollination from a nearby tree will increase the already bumper crop.

Producing small, intensely red fruit ‘Elshard’ apples are satisfying to bite into, their white flesh being crisp and crunchy. And best of all, they are absolutely bursting with juicy, tangy flavour and ready to harvest from October to December, and they store very well too!

Supplied as an established tree, 150cm (5ft) tall in a 24cm pot. growing to a height and spread of 2.5m (8ft).

Top Tips

  • Keep well watered, and if growing in a pot, use a good quality, soil-based compost.
  • Add Rootgrow Mycorrhizal Fungi to the roots when planting to help establish your tree more quickly.
  • Place your tree in a sunny position for the best crops.

Care Information

  • Apply a slow-release fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone, in early spring, and mulch to retain moisture.
  • Water regularly, and don't let the soil dry out if planted in pots.
  • Established trees don't require radical pruning - just take off any diseased, dying and damaged branches in late winter. Look at the overall shape and aim for an open structure of branches and remove any that cross over so they don't damage each other.
