Malus domestica Fortune - Early Season

Description of Fortune Trees & Fruit:
Fortune is medium sized, green and red eating apple. The flesh is alive with flavour, very juicy and firm, with a rough texture, though not quite crumbly. It is perfect for making juice. The tree recommended for growing in the North. It has a biennial cropping tendency, which means that it won't crop so well on some years.

Browse all our apple trees here or read our guide to buying the right apple tree.

Characteristics of Fortune Trees:

  • Eating - ideal for juicing.
  • Partially Self Fertile.
  • Pollination Group C.
  • Spur Bearer: suitable for cordons & training on wires.
  • Diseases: Resistant to scab, susceptible to canker.
  • Harvest: September - October.
  • Store & ripen in a cool, dry place: Less than 4 weeks. It doesn't ripen well off the branch, so pick the fruit as late as possible. Choose the reddest fruit first.

Pollination Partners for Fortune:
Fortune is partially self fertile and its flowers must be pollinated to make good crops.
Your trees are in pollination Group C.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups B, C and D.

See our Guide to Apple Tree Pollination for a full list of partners & more tips about pollination (it's really simple, we promise!).

Apple Tree Rootstocks:
Fortune Maidens & Standards are grown on "MM106" rootstocks. These are suitable for espaliers and free standing trees.
Our Fortune Cordons are grown on dwarfing "M9" rootstocks.
Our Fortune Bush shaped apple trees are grown on "M26" rootstocks. These are free standing trees with short trunks. Their final height is about 3 metres.

Growing Fortune Apple Trees:
Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting.
Soil drainage must be good, although apple trees do like clay soil.
The more sun your trees get, the better your crops will be.
