Nant Gwrtheryn Apple

History & Discovery

Nant Gwrtheryn on the Pen Llyn in North Wales was an isolated quarry community accessible only by the sea. A delightful golden russet eating apple with a fascinating fennel flavour was found four years ago in the remains of the quarry manager's garden. Although over 100 years old, the battered old tree still produces sound fruit.

The once derelict buildings of Nant Gwrtheryn are now restored and are used as a Welsh language and Heritage centre. The walk down to the village and the sea views are fabulous. Be sure to visit the museum and cafe.


This naturally disease resistant apple is ideal for organic cultivation in Wales. Pick in October, use October to December.

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 in poor (very wet, dry or rocky). Small trees cannot compete with grass and weeds.
Select your rootstock by using the paypal button corresponding to the eventual size of tree you desire. You will have the option to select the number of trees you wish to order on the Paypal page.
