  • Cider - Bittersharp, vintage quality.
  • Self Sterile.
  • Pollination Group B.
  • Spur Bearer: suitable for cordons & training on wires.
  • Harvest: September.

Pollination Partners for Foxwhelp:
Foxwhelp is self sterile and its flowers must be pollinated to make fruit.
Your trees are in pollination Group B.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups A, B and C

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:
Foxwhelp Maidens & Standards are grown on "MM106" rootstocks. These are suitable for espaliers and free standing trees.
Our Foxwhelp Cordons are grown on dwarfing "M9" rootstocks.
Our Foxwhelp 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 Foxwhelp 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.
