Malus domestica Blenheim Orange is a very old English apple variety. It’s an attractive, vigorous apple tree with pale pink flowers blooming in April and May and large, golden, flushed red, crisp, nutty, dessert and cooking apples with crumbly texture. Ready for harvesting in September and October. Malus domestica Blenheim Orange prefers moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soil in full sun. It can tolerate partial shade, but the crop is best in full sun. It is suitable for northerly, cooler, rainier climates. Resistant to scab and mildew. It can withstand frost, but it needs to be sheltered from harsh winds. It’s a triploid, it needs two other varieties for pollination. Regular pruning is required. Apple ‘Blenheim Orange’ is a vigorous architectural tree perfect for informal, cottage, and urban gardens. Suitable for growing in containers. Fruits can be eaten fresh, cooked to purée or cooked to keep its shape. It is thought to be one of the best dual purpose apples.

M26 is a semi-dwarfing rootstock (smaller than MM106) used for apple trees, particularly in orchards and home gardens. It produces trees 10-12 feet in height, making them easier to manage and harvest. M26 ensures early fruit production, good anchorage, and medium vigor. However, it requires staking during early years and is moderately susceptible to fire blight.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
