  • Spur Bearer: suitable for cordons & training on wires.

General description of Beauty of Bath:
These are very early cropping, medium sized, red speckled eaters with a delicious sharp, aromatic flavour. The flesh is quite soft and white, although it can very often have red flecks or speckles. Like most early croppers, these apples don't store well and are best eaten straight off the tree. It is not always a regular cropper: poorly cropping trees can often be helped with potassium rich fertiliser.

All of our Beauty of Bath trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks, except for the cordons, which are grown on M9 rootstocks.

Pollination Partners for Beauty of Bath:
Your trees are self sterile and their flowers must be pollinated to make fruit.
Beauty of Bath 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.

Beauty of Bath Disease notes:
Disease resistance: Scab (excellent).

History & Parentage:
This Somerset tree is from Bailbrook, just north of Bath, and was raised by Mr Cooling in the 1860's. It used to be a common commercial variety in Britain, but it has lost out to other varieties that store for longer.

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: Beauty of Bath 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.
