Features

notes
This variety of dessert apple has several notable benefits- it is compact, profuse flowering, very heavy cropping and suitability for the smallest of gardens. Rosette Bush has a crisp, juicy texture with a sweet flavour akin to that of a raspberry. The rosy, red skin bears a speckled rosette pattern that penetrates deep into the flesh so when the fruit is cut, a beautiful effect is generated. 
Insights

The internal pink marbling adds a pretty flourish when sliced and added to a fruit salad or a cheeseboard. Fruit is best eaten straight off the tree.

Care
  • Rootstock indicates that this is a semi dwarf variety.

  • Best grown in a sheltered, sunny spot where the blossom can attract pollinators and the fruit can ripen in the sun. Prune annually to achieve the optimum crop.
