Product Information

’Gloster' is a delicious variety of dessert apple that produces abundant crops of medium sized sweet and aromatic autumn fruit with a hint of tartness.

In spring the tree is covered in a profusion of delicate pink blossoms that fade to white before the fruit begins to form. Producing good sized, deep red fruit ‘Gloster’ apples have a satisfying crunch to their texture when eaten. Although self-fertile, cross-pollination from a nearby tree will result in a much larger crop.

A consistently reliable performer and a great asset to any garden combining an impressive flower display during May and scrumptious juicy fruit in October.

Supplied as an established tree, 150cm (5ft) tall grown on an M9 dwarfing rootstock 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.
