Product Information

Perfect for small spaces or patio pots, this apple will perform just as well as any other, but in an incredibly compact form!

‘Bolero’ is a Ballerina apple tree, grown to be naturally columnar in shape and almost without branches. As this is achieved by breeding instead of pruning, the tree will maintain its upright shape without the need for skilled pruning or training. ‘Bolero’ apples are sweet, crisp and juicy, medium sized, and ready to pick from September. Ideal for eating fresh or for cooking, this is a wonderful way to grow your own apples!

Reaching just 2m in height after 5 years, Ballerina 'Bolero' is so easy to harvest as the apples naturally occur on small spurs close to the main stem instead of on branches. As well as being a productive fruit tree, it makes a spectacular ornamental tree when grown in a large pot, superb as a patio plant and wonderful displayed either side of a doorway or garden gate where you can really appreciate their lovely pink flushed, white spring blossom followed by a good crop of juicy apples.

Supplied as a bare root tree, ready to plant, growing to 2m in 5 years.

Top Tips

  • Keep well-watered, and if growing in a pot, use a good quality, soil-based compost.

Care Information

  • On receipt, soak the roots in water for at least two hours (overnight is better). If you can't plant straight away, they should be fine for up to a week if left in a cool, dark, frost-free place - keep the bag around the roots with some water inside.
  • Dig a hole twice the width of the roots, forking over the bottom to loosen the soil, and add some good quality fertiliser such as Blood Fish & Bone (wash your hands afterwards!).
  • Aim to plant at the same depth as the soil mark on the trunk.
  • Holding the tree or plant upright in position with one hand, slowly backfill the hole with soil, and gently shake the plant, so the soil falls back around the roots.
  • Use your heel to compact the soil around the plant to ensure good contact around the roots.
    If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • No special pruning is required, but If side branches form, remove them in winter.
