Malus domestica Harry Master's Jersey - Late Season

Description of Harry Master's Jersey Trees & Fruit:

This is a vintage cider apple, which means that you can get a full-bodied cider using just the juice of these fruit. Its flavour is classed as bittersweet, like most classic West Country ciders. The tree is good for smaller spaces, as it is quite slow growing and doesn't spread much.
Harry Master's Jersey apple is also known as Port Wine.

Pollination Partners for Harry Master's Jersey:
Harry Master's Jersey is self sterile and its flowers must be pollinated to make fruit.
Your trees are in pollination Group D.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups C, D and E.

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:
Harry Master's Jersey Maidens & Standards are grown on "MM106" rootstocks. These are suitable for espaliers and free standing trees.
Our Harry Master's Jersey Cordons are grown on dwarfing "M9" rootstocks.
Our Harry Master's Jersey 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 Harry Master's Jersey Apple Trees:
Apple trees often need to have their fruit thinned out soon after the end of flowering to give the best quality crops. Harry needs special attention with this job to help smooth out its biennial cropping: when you see lots of fruitlets, snip a few more off after the natural June drop.
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.

History & Parentage of Harry Master's Jersey:
This apple dates back to the turn of the 20th century and comes from Yarlington Mill, famous Somerset cider country. The tree is heavy cropper overall, but it does have that biennial tendency of smaller crop sizes on some years. Despite that, it is grown on many cider apple farms.
