Apple Sweet Summer tree
Apple 'Sweet Summer' is a world first in apple trees.
Its delicious sweet fruits do not ripen all at once, which means you don't have to pick them all together and store or eat them all in one go. Instead 'Sweet Summer' ripens in autumn over a period of 6-8 weeks, meaning you have a two month long continual supply of ripe fruit you can leave on the tree and pick fresh every week.
This long ripening trait is of course not at all desirable for commercial orchards, where they want to pick all the fruit on one day, so this seedling was nearly consigned to the skips of history.
It is a self-fertile tree, on P22 rootstock, which is even more dwarfing than M9 so will stay nice and compact and perfect for the patio or small gardens where space may be limited.
It is also a seedling from 'Golden Delicious' so the fruit develops green and then turns blush pink and then eventually turns to yellow when they are ripe to pick.
What's more, Sweet Summer' is very resistant to heat and frosts, so survives all extremes of weather in the UK really well.
Great as a small specimen tree in the border or on the patio in large containers (more than 45cm or 18' diameter), Sweet Summer' is a delicious variety perfect for home gardeners.
