MALUS DOMESTICA INITIAL INITIAL APPLE tree in new zealand

MALUS DOMESTICA INITIAL - INITIAL APPLE

The Initial apple is a cross between a Gala and a Redfree and is an excellent eating apple with red skin, a lovely aroma, low acid and high sugar. It is easy to grow and very tolerant to a large range of apple diseases and pests. Heavy fruit sets will require thinning. Trim to suit the size required, ultimately trim each winter to 2.5m to make fruit picking easy.

Good Roots………

Roots are the anchors and feeding mechanism for a tree, if these are not right then the success of the tree is compromised.  What might look like a big strong tree may not be mirrored by it root system.  Icon Trees is one of the few nurseries that identify with this issue and dispose of these trees instead of growing them on to the next grade or supplying trees that will not successfully reach maturity.
