Ballerina Flamenco Apple Trees

Delivered by Mail Order from the Nursery with a 1 Year Guarantee

The Ballerina Flamenco apple tree produces late season eating apples on a very narrow, columnar tree, typically 60-100cms wide when mature. They grow as a pole with almost no side branches: the fruiting spurs come directly off the main trunk on stubbly little mini-branches. They are suitable for growing in a large pot, although they aren't really a dwarf tree: they should grow to about 3 to 3.5 metres. 
They are great for use as architectural elements in a garden design and make decent screening when they are planted close together in rows. The flowers are pretty, with a hint of pink across the white petals.

The fruit are crisp, juicy and sweet with a touch of acidity.

Pollination Partners for Ballerina Flamenco:
Your trees are self sterile and their flowers must be pollinated to make fruit.
Ballerina Flamenco is in pollination Group C.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups B, C and D.

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

Ballerina Flamenco Disease notes:
We don't have specific details, but these trees are not listed as being tough enough for organic growing.

History & Parentage:
This tree was developed in Britain from a Canadian tree called McIntosh Wijick. It is also known as 'Ballerina Obelisk" or "Stark Crimson Spire".

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: Ballerina Flamenco trees are spur-bearers, so they can be made into cordons and espaliers.
