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.
Kingston Black - bare rooted
Also known as Black Taunton, the Kingston Black cider apple was a popular cider apple in Somersetshire, and is perhaps the most well known of all cider apples available today in Australia. Kingston Black is one of the definitive English hard cider apple varieties and one of the few English varieties that can be used without blending to make a single-varietal cider. The apple is crimson with darker streaks on on yellow background, flesh yellowish and tender, with only a mild acidity, makes a high quality bittersharp cider.
Please note this is a cider apple variety.
