History & Discovery
The Wern Apple originates from Pembrokeshire in the 19th Century. It is an excellent reliable apple for Welsh gardens.
The fruit is medium sized with a rich flavour. In October when cooked it keeps its shape (ideal for tarts). In the New Year it sweetens to a tangy eating apple.
Rootstock & Eventual Tree Size
All fruit trees are grafted onto rootstocks. The rootstocks determine eventual tree size.
Bigger trees are more robust & produce more fruit, but take up more space.
Always choose a bigger rootstock if you need extra anchorage or your soil is poor (very wet, dry or rocky). Small trees cannot compete with grass and weeds.
