Malus domestica Slack Ma Girdle

Slack ma Girdle probably means "slack my girl" rather than "loosen my belt". Risque names aside, Slack ma Girdle apples are medium sized with a quite flat shape and have an attractive, picture book apple colour of yellow green with bright red patches. The flesh is very sweet, making it a good choice for use in a blended cider when combined with a bittersweet and a sharp cider apple. As they are so sweet, these apples are also great for use in jams - just the best in blackberry and apple jam. Though it is in the early flowering category, Slack ma Girdle's fruit ripen late, starting in November and hanging on into the New Year, if you don't pick them for some reason. This leisurely ripening period could be the reason for its curious name. It originates from Devon, though its parentage is unknown.

Pollination Partners for Slack Ma Girdle

We like to stress that crab apples like Golden Hornet are the most sure-fire way to pollinate your apple trees, especially if you only have a couple. Slack ma Girdle is in the early flowering group and should pollinate well with any of the other fertile trees that are listed as early or mid-season in the Apple Tree Pollination guide.

Slack ma Girdle Rootstocks

We use MM106 rootstocks on all of our apple trees. These give you the biggest range of options and are practical for both home and commercial growing. MM106 produces a medium sized tree at a rate that can be trained into a bush, fan, cordon or espalier.
