Malus domestica 'Kidd's Orange Red' is a vigorous, deciduous tree of bushy, upright habit with ovate, green leaves and scented, pale pink flowers blooming in spring. Flowers are followed by very aromatic, crisp and sweet, yellow, flushed orange and red, apple fruits. Their skin is thin and the flesh is dense, juicy, and full of flavour. It’s a late season variety, ready for harvesting in November. It can be preserved until January. Malus domestica 'Kidd's Orange Red' grows best in rich, neutral, moderately fertile, moist, well-drained soils. It thrives in full sun. It can tolerate partial shade but the best crop is achieved in full sun. Requires another apple nearby for pollination. Adaptable to urban conditions. Requires regular pruning and thinning, otherwise fruits may be small. Apple 'Kidd's Orange Red' is a wonderful and delicious dessert apple with a good balance of sugar and acidity. It can be eaten fresh or used for culinary purposes.

Root stock MM106 is a semi-dwarfing rootstock commonly used for apple trees. It offers a moderate growth rate, producing trees 10-15 feet tall when mature. Suitable for medium-sized gardens, MM106 ensures good fruit yield and adaptability to various soils. It's resistant to woolly apple aphid and moderately resistant to crown rot. Ideal for bush, cordons, and espalier forms. Ensure proper staking in early years.

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).
