Product Information

The perfect size for growing on your patio, whilst still delivering an excellent harvest, and if you're looking for really big, juicy apples, then Patio ‘Jonagold’ is the variety for you! An attractive garden tree in its own right, white spring flowers give way to huge fruit in October.

The apples are yellow with bold, bright red smudges that can sometimes spread to cover most of the skin, and being fabulously juicy with a deliciously sweet flavour and a crisp crunch these are a real treat. They are perfect picked straight from the tree for snacking but this versatile apple is also ideal for cooking, making tasty desserts.

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.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, harvesting for many years to come.

‘Jonagold’ is a cross between apples ‘Jonathan’ and ‘Golden Delicious’, and is a ‘triploid’ variety, meaning that it has three sets of chromosomes instead of the usual two. Tiploid varieties are sterile, so they can’t pollinate themselves or other apple trees. They need other trees nearby to pollinate them, not an issue if you grow more than one apple in you garden, or if a nearby neighbour does!

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.
