Elstar Apple Trees - Mini Patio

Intense, honey sweet flavour with a tangy tartness when fresh that mellows after about three weeks off the tree. The bite is medium-crisp, and the white flesh is very juicy. Good for apple sauce. A reliable, heavy cropping tree that definitely needs thinning to avoid a biennial cropping habit. RHS Plants for Pollinators.

Did You Know? 

Known variously around the world as Luster, Lustre Elstar, Valstar, or Elton (not Elton Beauty, which is a British apple that was bred around the same time). It was bred by Dr. Tijs Visser between 1955 and 1963 at the Dutch Institut für Gärtnerische Pflanzenzüchtung, and then introduced commercially in 1972. Its parents are Golden Delicious (seed) and Ingrid Marie (pollen), and it is in turn one parent of Santana.
