Llwyd Hanner Goch (1500s, Dinefwr)
History & Discovery
A delicious South Wales late russet apple, found especially in the Dinefwr area. The fruit tree is thought to date back to the 16th Century.
Pick in October, use in December – March.
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.
