'Discovery' Apple Trees M9 Semi Dwarf

In a nutshell....

'Discovery' was first introduced in 1949 in Suffolk, it's parents are 'Worcester Pearmain' and probably 'Beauty of Bath'. The fruit is medium sized with a mostly crimson skin over patches of yellow. The flesh has a pinkish hue and a fresh sweet taste with a good acid balance.

'Discovery' Apple Trees

Pre-order now for delivery from mid-October

'Discovery' was first introduced in 1949 in Suffolk, it's parents are 'Worcester Pearmain' and probably 'Beauty of Bath'. The fruit is medium sized with a mostly crimson skin over patches of yellow. The flesh may have a pinkish hue and has a fresh sweet taste with a good acid balance. I have 5 varieties of apple in my garden and when picked at just the right time (when still a little acid) 'Discovery ' is my hands down favourite. Grown Semi Dwarf M9 Rootstock reaching heights of 6-9 ft.

'Discovery' flowers in mid season, fruit matures quickly and is ready for picking from late August to early October. Unlike other early apple varieties the fruit holds long enough on the tree to ripen fully. You will often see 'Discovery' in the Supermarkets early in the season but as they are at their best for only a week after picking you probably haven't had a good one. This is a shame as when picked straight from the tree these apples are exceptional.

Can you grow apples with just one ?
Answered by Niall
on October 15th, 2020
Hi Aoife Yes as there will normally be other pollinators around. Discovery is one you can grow on its own. Some apple trees very specifically need a support tree but Discovery is fine Niall Quickcrop

I'd like to order a Discovery apple for myself - I have one already with a Beauty of Bath next to it. Want to get one for my son also. Which of the other apples you supply would be best pollinator ? How tall are Discovery when supplied ? Thanks Mary
Answered by Niall
on September 29th, 2020
Hi Mary Sorry for not replying sooner. Coxs, Elstar James Grieve are all in the same pollinator group as Discovery so any of these will do. The trees are supplied roughly 5/6ft tall Niall Quickcrop

Please can you say something about best position for a Discovery apple tree and some hints on planting technique and how to prepare the ground ahead of planting. Thank you. I had one at my last house but I didn't plant it. And, yes, it's a delicious apple and also makes delicious stewed apple.

Hi Sara. I include a link to a recent article I wrote about planting fruit, if you skip to the second bit I cover planting tree fruit which will be the same info for a Discovery apple tree. I hope this helps. Andrew. https://www.quickcrop.co.uk/blog/planting-fruit-in-october/
