All our trees for sale are grafted and grown right here in the Black Barn Farm nursery using absolutely no synthetic fertilisers, herbicides or insecticides. Each and every tree is inoculated with beneficial mycorrhizal fungi, fed specific woodsy composts and well irrigated to ensure you are taking home the healthiest tree and root system possible. All our trees are grafted onto semi-dwarfing disease resistant rootstock, perfect for low maintenance backyard orchards and suitable as a free standing tree 3-5m tall or for espaliering where heights could be kept to 2m with annual pruning. Each tree is sold with a free planting and growing guide.
King Cole - bare rooted
Bred on the Mornington Peninsula, Victoria. This pretty as a picture dual purpose apple is medium-size and with a bright red flush. It is firm, juicy, sub-acid and a fair keeper. It was raised in Lang Lang Victoria by R.G. Cole and is a cross between the Jonathan and Dutch Mignonne apples. In earlier times, this apple was extensively exported. It is good to eat and very good cooking apple. It was sold to Heinz for making apple puree in the 60s and 70s.
