'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

Note: Fruit Trees Will Be Sent Out The First Week In November, They Can Still Be Purchased As Normal

'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.
