Product Info

Dwarf Apple Irish Peach
An old apple originating in Ireland in 1820. A very early season Apple. A good cropper and an excellent eater. Also used for desserts. Not a good keeper. Has some disease resistant. Has a flushed, striped skin with pale cream flesh.
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.
