CORNISH GILLIFLOWER APPLE

Cornish Gillyflower is a high quality late dessert apple. No prizes for knowing where apple Cornish Gillyflower originates. Fine, firm flesh with an intense and perfumed sweet, rich flavour. Deep yellow-green knobbly fruit flushed speckled red and a dusting of russet.. Should be picked as late as possible for best flavour. Cornish Gillyflower was very popular during the Victorian period and once again is gaining in popularity due to its easy growing and fine fruit. Truro. C.1800

Our Apple Cornish Gillyflower bare rooted trees are lifted at the start of the bare root season in November, when the apple trees become dormant, and made available through to March the following year. This period is the ideal time for economical planting. You will however have to wait a year to pick your crop as bare root trees cannot be picked in their first year. For all year round planting why not choose from our selection of container grown apple trees. They do cost more but are older, more established and ready to crop.

Available in economy and premium selection

Economy - rooted into its pot but a further season before moving up a pot size.
Premium - more growth in its pot. More mature than Economy
