Planting and flowering details
Harvesting Details
  • Planting
  • This Dual Apple Tree will thrive in the garden. Make sure the root ball on your Dual Apple Tree is well-drenched before planting by soaking it in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a suitable hole in fertile garden soil. Improve poor garden soil by mixing in some well-rotted manure. Plant the Dual Apple Tree (Malus domesticus) 'Elstar' and 'Golden Delicious' at the appropriate depth - the top of the root ball should be approximately 10 cm below ground level. Give the tree good support from a tree post and wrap a tree belt around both pole and trunk. Fill the hole and press firmly in. Water generously immediately after planting. A Dual Apple Tree will thrive in fertile soil in a spot in full sun.

  • Care
  • Malus domestica 'Elstar' and 'Golden Delicious' apples are both strong and healthy apple varieties. We advise a mulch of well-rotted manure and fertiliser pellets around the base of the tree in winter. Water extra during periods of drought. In August, thin the fruit out by removing the smallest apples so that all the energy goes to the larger fruit. The apples can be picked in October.
    Pruning a Dual Apple Tree
    Prune apple trees from November through to March as long as there is no frost. Fruit trees continue to grow from the top, so if you want to keep your tree shorter we advise topping it off. Most apple trees grow short and strong side shoots on which the apples develop – you can stimulate their growth by cutting the main stems back about a third, to right above a bud. Then cut side shoots back to 3-6 buds and you will then see the fruit develop on there.

  • Specifics
  • The famous Dual Malus domestic Apple Tree has 'Elstar' and 'Golden Delicious' apples which are delicious and have firm, juicy flesh. The taste is aromatic and slightly sweet and sour. The skin of 'Elstar' is red and the skin of 'Golden Delicious' is yellowish green. These two different apples pollinate each other. Both types of apple can be eaten freshly picked, but they can also be pureed. Apples are very good for us and high in vitamin C.
