Pig Y Glomen (Pembroke)
History & Discovery
The Pigeon’s Beak apple tree appears to originate from Pembroke, but has also found in Denbigh and Anglesey.
Large round mid-season cooker with a pale green skin. Lovely flavour, little additional sugar needed when cooking. Fruit often have a raised area by the stalk, hence the name.
Pollination group B.
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.
