Characteristics of Cornish Aromatic Trees:
General description of Cornish Aromatic:
Cornish Aromatic apples are decent sized dessert apples, with a russet over their dry red and green skin. The fruit has a dry, firm texture and good fruity taste, although it is reported to lose flavour if the tree isn't planted in a sunny spot or if the soil gets too dry in summer.
The tree is vigorous and has quite a dense habit. It is noted as doing well in damper soils and has good disease resistance.
All of our Cornish Aromatic trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks.
