Product Information

'Discovery' produces very heavy crops of its perfectly round, red-flushed fruit late in the season each year, and they really are some of the scrummiest you will eat! The flavour is not only refreshingly juicy, but also nicely acidic with the perfect amount of sweetness, and the creamy-white flesh is satisfyingly crunchy.

They are simply divine when eaten straight from the tree, but they can also be stored easily, and are fantastic when pressed to make zingy home-made apple juice.

This relatively new, all-round winner is the perfect apple for gardeners of all abilities; it is absolutely effortless to grow, and even the most inexperienced gardener can expect to get large quantities of top-quality, incredibly tasty fruit from their tree.

Our trees are supplied on dwarfing rootstock, so they will remain compact, and you can even grow them in pots on your patio!

Supplied as an established plant, 90-110cm tall in a 5L pot, it's perfect to plant into your garden now.

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.
