Afal Anghidi (Monmouthshire)
History & Discovery
Over a hundred years ago, the Globe Pub stood by the Anghidi Fawr River, close to Tintern Abbey. Outside this pub still grows this historical apple. This apple tree was used to produce cider for drovers and local ironworkers.
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.
If you want your fruit tree to remain smaller than its eventual tree size, simply prune back in the summer.
