Product Information

Patio 'Summerred' has been specially grown to be the perfect size for growing in a pot on your patio or balcony, and although it's small in stature, it will still produce an impressive crop of tasty apples!

Eaten fresh and raw, or used in cooking to make delicious desserts, this juicy apple has well balanced sweetness and acidity and lovely white flesh which has a hint of strawberry to its flavour. Producing large red dessert apples, 'Summerrd' is an early season apple, so you can begin to pick the fabulous fruit as early as mid-august!.

By experty grafting to the M9 rootstock 20-30cm above soil level, we've been able to further restrict the already dwarfing habit to produce a wonderful yet productive patio tree. 'Summerred' is self-sterile, so it will need a pollination partner - another apple in a nearby garden, if not your own!

Supplied as an established tree, 90-110cm (3ft) tall grown on an M9 dwarfing rootstock in a 18cm pot, growing to a height and spread of 1.5m (5ft).

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.
