Saint Lawrence Dwarfing

This is undoubtedly the most visually attractive apple we grow. It has pink and red stripes and flushes over a pale green background. Matures early about the same time as Gravenstein. The flesh has a mild sweet flavour but with quite an acid tang. There are lots of old St Lawrence trees in our area and it must have been quite an important commercial variety 50 or 60 years ago.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
