Apple Tree Rootstocks:
Red Windsor Maidens & Standards are grown on "MM106" rootstocks. These are suitable for espaliers and free standing trees.
Our Red Windsor Cordons are grown on dwarfing "M9" rootstocks.
Our Red Windsor 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 Red Windsor 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.

History & Parentage of Red Windsor:
This tree is a sport of a 1930's German tree called Alkmene. The sport was cloned from a branch that appeared on an Alkmene tree in Herefordshire, 1985. Alkmene was previously known as Early Windsor in Britain and renamed "Sweet Lilibet" by school children in a competition in 1998. Red Windsor / Red Alkmene is essentially the same apple, just with a red flush pretty much all over the skin, whereas the original Alkmene's skin only has a few red stripes and patches.

The parent trees are Cox's Orange Pippin and Geheimrat Dr. Oldenburg.
