This is a fast growing, hardy tree and its blossom is a sumptuous, deep pink-red.

History & Parentage:
Mr Samuel Greatorex raised this tree around 1857, possibly from the a pip of a Blenheim Orange apple. It was propagated and sold by Harrison's of Leicester about 10 years later. It was a commercially grown tree for some decades in the UK, disappearing from farms during the 20th century's decline in orchards.

Our fruit trees are delivered in 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: Annie Elizabeth trees are spur-bearers, so they can be made into cordons and espaliers.

Half-Standard: This is a freestanding style that will grow into a full sized, "normal" apple tree, about 4 metres tall.
