Limelight Apple Trees

Limelight Apple Trees produce mid-season eating apples that store well. They were specifically bred with the amateur grower in mind and are really easy to grow. They produce heavy crops of yellow-green eating apples that are deliciously crisp, sharp and refreshing. The apples ripen on the tree successively from September to early November and keep for a few weeks so you have a long eating season. The windfalls are excellent for juicing. Limelight apples are well named; the yellow-green fruits are almost luminous and contrast beautifully against the dark green foliage making this a really attractive specimen tree.

Great for your garden:

Malus domestica Limelight is best planted in an open, sunny spot, away from frost pockets. They are not self-fertile, which means they need other apples planted nearby to aid pollination. For suitable partners, you can view our full range of apple trees here.

They are tidy and compact making them suitable for small gardens. They look great in an orchard, as a specimen in a lawn or worked into an informal or cottage garden planting scheme.

Why not try lining your driveway with apple trees? Their blossom is very attractive to bees and looks beautiful in spring, followed by their highly decorative and delicious fruits through summer and well into autumn.

Look out for:
Limelight apple trees can have some susceptibility to scab. This can be controlled for the following season by pruning out infected branches, removing any fallen fruit or debris and burning.

Malus domestica Limelight Trivia



Malus Domestica Limelight was bred by the legendary Henry Ermen and is the result of a cross-breeding of 'Greensleeves' and 'Discovery' apples. Fantastic flavour and great disease resistance have made these varieties two of our best-loved and most popular apples for domestic gardens. So, with a lot to live up to, it is no wonder the resulting progeny was aptly named 'Limelight'!
