Sorbus aucuparia Edulis - Edible Rowan Standard Trees

Sorbus aucuparia Edulis is a native Rowan tree with good crops of edible red berries. It is a medium-sized, deciduous tree with vigorous, slender and fairly upright growth that is easy to keep neat and tidy. As with almost all our other varieties of Rowan and Mountain Ash fluffy clumps of little white flowers appear in May. These develop into red berries, which are just as popular with birds as they are with people; as well as looking great, they are suited for a working fruit and vegetable garden.

Edulis can be found growing high up on windswept mountains. Perhaps it's for this reason that they have sweeter fruit: to give the birds that spread their seeds an incentive to fly up to them.

Rowans are famous for their autumn colour. The leaves begin to change to glowing orange, red and yellow embers at their own pace, with some green leaves remaining into mid-autumn. The clusters of cherry red berries are a great decorative feature from mid-summer and all the elements reach a crescendo around the beginning of October. It can reach a height of about 10 metres.

Standard trees are the largest size that we deliver; you can also buy native Mountain Ash saplings here.

How Standard Trees are Measured:

All the plants in the ornamental trees section are graded as standards, which means that they are measured by their girth in centimetres 1 metre above ground level (basically, their trunk's waist measurement). They aren't measured by their height, which will vary. So, a 6/8 standard has a trunk with a circumference of 6-8 centimetres and an 8/10 standard has a trunk 8-10 centimetres around. This measurement makes no difference to the tree's final height.
Standard trees are 2 - 3.5 metres tall (on average) when they arrive; they are the most mature trees that you can buy from us. We cannot tell you precisely how tall your trees will be before we deliver them.

Did You Know? 

Also known as the Moravica or Dulcis Rowan.

All Rowans have edible berries, once they have been cooked. Edulis berries are the least bitter and therefore the more versatile - as well as jelly to go with venison or poultry, they also make the best jam and wine.

Top Tip: The secret to success with Rowan berries is to freeze them before you use them.
