Originally referred to as ‘Pole Trees’ this range of trees has been produced in conjunction with Easy Malling Research Station and the whole is called ‘Ballerina’.
The growth of Ballerina trees is such that they make very short side breaks and hence no pruning is necessary.
So far six cultivars have evolved from crossing the original sport with the latest and best type of varieties from East Malling.
All Ballerina trees this season are available on MM106. Due to their compact potential, they will only reach 8 feet in hetght (2.4m) after five years of growth with the advantage of no pruning or staking, easy to spray and easy to pick.
Ideal for upright pillar, garden ornamentation (i.e. either side of entrances) plus a host of other applications.
