you want lots of apples and have a larger garden the MM111 rootstock may
be the solution. It is a vigorous grower, and is quite capable of
supporting itself without staking.
disadvantage is that it may take up to six years before it produces it's
first crop of apples - but when it does, you will have an average of 28
kilos (60lbs) apples each year.
can easily reach a spread of 4.5 metres (16ft) at maturity, so bear this
in mind when planting.
apple trees is not complicated, but with MM111 rootstock apple trees
pruning will either need some climbing skills and / or a reasonably long
set of extension secateurs. Definitely not one for the couch potato
