Afal Morfa Bychan (Gwynedd)
History & Discovery
After a tip off, it took us 3 years to eventually find this unique, striking red apple. It miraculously grows out of the sand dunes at Morfa Bychan (Black Rock Sands).
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.
