General description of Adam's Pearmain:
Adams Pearmain is an old dessert apple, with a crisp and juicy texture. The flavour is on the dry sharp side, with a blend of subtly sweet, nutty flavours that go very well with cheese.
The juice has a nice pink tinge to it.
The yellow skin flushes with a deep, russet flecked red as they ripen and is quite tough.
The fruit hangs well on the branches until picked (this tree is also called Hanging Pearmain).

Rootstocks:
All of our Adam's Pearmain trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks.

Pollination Partners for Adam's Pearmain:

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

Adam's Pearmain disease notes:
Disease resistance: Scab

History & Parentage:
Introduced in 1826 by Mr R. Adams, the parentage of this tree is unknown.
Because of their top-heavy shape, they are often stored upside down. Pearmain is a common name for apples with a slight pear shape.
It's also called Norfolk Pippin. Pippin and Kernel are often used in the names of apple trees that were grown from an anonymous pip.

How Apple Trees are Measured:
Our fruit trees are delivered in 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: Adams Pearmain trees are partial tip-bearers, so they are suitable for 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.
