Opalescent Dwarfing

This is probably the most strikingly picturesque apple we sell. It ripens to an iridescent glowing crimson on the tree and it's taste is rich and sweet. Fruit can be medium to large in size. A fine all-round apple of American origin - great juiced, cooks superbly as well as eaten fresh. Hangs well on the tree without losing much quality.

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
