Annie Elizabeth apple trees produce mid-season cooking apples that store well. The apples are large but firm enough so that when they soften as they are cooked (baked or stewed) they hold their shape. The skin is tough and waxy both of which are qualities needed by apples you want to store and Annie Elizabeth will keep for up to 6 months in a cool, dry, frost-free place. 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.

Cordon: Annie Elizabeth trees are spur-bearers, so they can be made into cordons and espaliers.
