Laxton Superb apple trees produce an apple that is a really good eater with an understated red and green skin and sweet, firm flesh - of the sort that sometimes seems to taste better cut than bitten. Although it was first introduced well over 100 ago, and many more modern apples have been bred since then, Laxton Superb trees crop beautifully and their fruit is still one of the tastiest apples you can grow.
It is a late flowering pollinator and is self-fertile. In other words a Laxtons Superb apple tree will produce some fruit if planted alone, but will always crop better in the company of another pollinator. For more information on apple pollination, including good pollinators for Laxton Superb please take a look at our Guide to Fruit Pollination. Use October-February
Please note that our bushes, half standards and maidens are on MM106 rootstocks while our cordons are on M9 which we believe is the best rootstock for this purpose for this variety.
