Product Info

Dwarf Apple Eagle Star
Found in East Gippsland on the side of the road. A smallish apple, with a white flesh and a distinctive red star in the middle. Most edible when fresh. Also classed as a crab apple with striking purple flowers.
PLANTING: Before planting, prune well back to an outward pointing bud to encourage branching. Plant in an open sunny position in free-draining soil. Although relatively self-fertile, planting another apple ensures heavier crops through cross-pollination.
CARE: Water regularly to ensure good bud growth and fruit set. Feed with complete fertiliser or animal manure in Spring. Spray for codling moth after fruit set.
PRUNING: Prune in Winter. Remove vigorous upright shoots, inward growing branches, weak shoots or dead wood.
