Spartan Apple on P60 Rootstock
The variety is a cross between McIntosh and Newton from British Columbia, Canada. Marketed in 1936 and came to Sweden approx. 1940. The tree grows moderately vigorously and has an upright stiff crown. The tree is healthy. The apples are small to medium-sized, round with a yellow-green base color and a very dark red covering color. The shell is thin and fragile. The pulp is white, juicy and very tasty. It has a lot of sweetness, medium acidity and weak aroma. An incredibly nice summer eating apple.

All our trees are 100% organic and grafted onto strong rootstocks (or as an exception on P60).
We offer organic fruit trees in their natural form and the form the tree itself has chosen. We leave the actual shaping and trimming of the trees to the customer as they wish.
In principle and under the condition of good care, our fruit trees can grow in all zones in Sweden. Our guarantee (“1 year plant guarantee”) only applies to growing zones 1-3. Note that for growing zones 4-6, it is imperative to give the trees extra care – such as adding good soil and fertilizer, a warm and sunny (wind protected) location and good watering.
