There are many types, varieties and growth forms of apple trees, from standard tree to dwarf, the mature size being controlled by the root stock used during grafting. The cultivation is the same for all types and varieties; only the pruning is different, One of the best ways to choose a variety of apple tree to grow is to see what varieties do well in your locality. Be aware that most apple trees need pollinators in order fruit. Some varieties need one other tree as a pollinator, and some need two, or even three. If you have apple trees in neighbouring gardens this should help, as long as they flower at the same time. ‘Spartan’ is an apple that is grown for its looks. They have a deep purple red colour which has a “bloom” on the surface and when polished gives it a glossy look. It is a prolific cropper and the fruit will be small unless half of the crop is removed; this also reduces the canker and scab problems to which Spartan is susceptible. Normally grown with M27 dwarf 1.8m or M26 semi dwarf 3m to 4m rootstock .
