General description of Early Victoria:

These are quite small fruit, but they make up for it with heavy crops. They are also one of the first cooking apples to crop each year. After baking, they have a loose, soft texture, similar to a Bramley, with a milder flavour that is still tart and sweet at the same time. We think that they are best eaten with raisins or sultanas and butter in the centre, straight from the oven. They are also delicious in any meat or vegetable main course, usually as a puree or sliced if the dish is being grilled.
These apples are radiant light green during growth, usually turning a rustic pale yellow when ripe.
This an all round reliable tree with lovely blossom. It generally crops well, but it can develop a bit of a biennial habit.

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

Pollination Partners for Early Victoria:
Your trees are partially self fertile and their flowers must be pollinated to make good crops.
Early Victoria 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.

Early Victoria Disease notes:
Disease resistance: Scab, Canker.

History & Parentage:
Mr Lynn of Emneth, Cambridgeshire, crossed Lord Grosvenor and Keswick Codlin in the late 1890's, so the early crops would have been some of the 20th century's first new fruit. Codlins are quite early season cookers and Lord Grosvenor apples are later cropping, very sharp and are pale yellow like the Early Victoria.

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: Early Victoria 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.
