General description of Crawley Beauty:

A medium sized cooker that can be eaten fresh once the fruit have ripened off the branch, the Crawley Beauty bakes to soft purée with a mild flavour. The fruit store well and conveniently hang on the tree after they are ripe, so you don't have to worry about going away for a few days during harvest time.
They can be eaten fresh in the new year, if you like a sharp tasting apple. The texture is coarse and not very juicy.
Crawley Beauty's great strength is its reliability. It is not fussy about where it grows, it is disease resistant, doesn't attract many pests and it crops heavily.

All of our Crawley Beauty trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks.

Pollination Partners for Crawley Beauty:.
Your trees are self sterile and their flowers must be pollinated to make fruit.
Crawley Beauty is in pollination Group H, which is the latest flowering group.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups G and H.
Because this tree flowers late, it is good for frosty areas.

See our Guide to Apple Tree Pollination for a full list of partners & more tips about pollination.
