Crisp-crunchy texture

Sweet flavour
Refreshing flavour
Mid season
Disease resistance
For the North

A superb variety from east Malling Research Station. It bears fruit very early in life and is a superb pollinator for other mid-season apples. The fruits are ready for picking at the end of September and will keep well until late November. The golden apples are very attractive on the tree, and resemble a much brighter and cleaner Golden Delicious. Pale Yellow, but always having russet around the stalk cavity. The medium to large fruits have crisp, juicy flesh with an excellent flavour. The trees are compact and extremely precocious, fruiting on both spurs and young wood. A very easy to manage tree. The yield is very, very high, cropping at about double that of Coxs Orange. Greensleeves is a cross between James Grieve and Golden Delicious, is partially self fertile, and flowers over a long period. This variety has frost resistance, is fairly hardy and can he grown in the north As Greensleeves is self fertile, it can be grown without any other pollinator and will produce a very worthwhile crop if you only have room for just one tree. For the very best results, plant with a pollinator such as: Coxs Orange, Grenadier, Redsleeves, Sunset etc. Greensleeves is a variety that we very highly recommend. All trees £1.00 extra to normal price.

UK mainland delivery is charged at £8.95. Sending a tree through the post isn't easy, so our parcels are expertly packed to keep your goods in the best condition. There is no surcharge on the delivery of larger parcels/orders.

Tree size as supplied varies but is usually between 3.5' - 4.5' on despatch. A few varieties might be slightly smaller, some a little bigger, of course it does vary but this is a good average. WE SUPPLY YOUNG TREES - and are proud to do so. Although we are sometimes requested to supply older/bigger trees, the percieved advantages are outwighed by disadvantages! Older trees take longer to establish and will fruit no more quickly. The young trees we send out grow away and establish so quickly and healthily & often yield within 1 season of planting. Our customers even report fruits the first year of planting! All professional fruit growers prefer to plant young trees rather than older.

Our soft fruit bushes are usually 2 years old.
Everything is stringently graded, grown on the nursery and well packed!

Gold Standard Health & Quality

Chris Bowers' Gold StandardWe have in place very rigorous standards for the health, providence and uniformity of all our fruiting plants & trees. Our Nursery and the stock we grow is inspected and passported for health regularly by DEFRA experts [formerly the Ministry of Agriculture] and we have in place our own stringent controls and inspection programmes to ensure our fruiting bushes and trees are the best, most disease free stocks available and truly beyond compare.

We always propagate from certified stock where this exists and have the highest standards regarding providence and grading. If only the very best will do - as it should - then you can rely on a Chris Bowers fruiting plant to give the most exemplary results available. We firmly believe that only the very healthiest stock can and does produce vastly superior results - and it shows.
