CHOOSING AN APPLE TREE

Type of apples
If you want to buy an apple tree, first think about what kind of apples you want. Do you want sweet apples like ‘Golden Delicious’ or ‘Jonagold’, or rather stew apples? You can also choose a eating apple (‘Elstar’) or a vegetable apple (‘Boskoop’). Also consider when you want to harvest the apples. For example, there are summer apples (‘Discovery’) and storage apples (‘Elstar’), with which you have fruit until the beginning of spring.

Room
Before you buy an apple tree, consider how much space you have for the tree. Old-fashioned varieties (‘Notarisappel’, ‘Goudreinette’) grow into meters high and wide trees. They are grown as a standard tree. Picking and pruning goes with these apple trees with a ladder. If you have less space, choose a half-stem apple tree, it will remain smaller. No ladders are needed for harvesting, you just walk past them. In a smaller garden, semi- or low-stem apples are ideal. They do not take up much space, and the children pick the apples straight from the tree.
