Bountiful Apple Trees - Delivered by Mail Order from the Nursery with a 1 Year Guarantee

Bountiful apple trees produce mid season cooking apples that are also good to eat fresh.

Browse all of our other apple tree varieties here or read our guide to buying the right apple tree.

Characteristics of Bountiful Trees:
  • Use: Cooking. Sweet. Holds shape when baked. Eaten fresh, it is quite sharp and juicy.
  • Spur Bearer: suitable for cordons & espaliers, trained on wires.
  • Tree's growth habit: Average vigour. Compact form.
  • Harvest: Late September.
  • Store & ripen in a cool, dry place: Until November.

General description of Bountiful:
These large apples are mainly used for cooking, which makes them sweet and firm with a moist texture that oozes with juice. Because they hold their shape after being sliced and cooked, they are good for topping apple pies and other apple desserts that need to look neat as well as taste good.
They are well shaped apples, predominantly green and take on a red blush towards the end of the season. The fresh fruit are generally best used for cooking, but as they ripen off the branch by mid October you can use them a nice, crisp eating apple, if you like a sharp flavour.
These trees are naturally quite tidy and low maintenance in terms of pruning. They begin cropping heavily when they are young.

Rootstocks:
All of our Bountiful trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks, except for the cordons, which are grown on M9 rootstocks.

Pollination Partners for Bountiful:
Your trees are self sterile and their flowers must be pollinated to make fruit.
Bountiful flowers for a long time, so it is really in pollination Groups A & B.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups A, B & C.

See our Guide to Apple Tree Pollination for a full list of partners & more tips about pollination.

Bountiful Disease notes:
Disease resistance: Mildew.

History & Parentage:
This is a relatively new variety of apple tree, bred in the 1960's at the East Malling Research Station in Kent, reputedly from a Cox's Orange Pippin, which is a supremely tasty apple, and a Lane's Prince Albert which, like Bountiful, stays in one piece when used as a cooking apple.

How Apple Trees are Measured & Delivered:
Our fruit trees are delivered in up to 3 shapes and you can also buy selected apple trees as ready made cordons.
Maiden: This unbranched tree is the smallest starting size. You can train maidens into espaliers and cordons.
Cordon: Bountiful trees are spur-bearers, so they can be made into cordons and espaliers.
Bush: This is a style of freestanding tree with a short trunk of about 60cms. It will grow to about 3 metres tall.
Half-Standard: This is a freestanding style that will grow into a full sized, "normal" apple tree, about 4 metres tall.
