Hi there, I hope you get this message. Your report so inspired me that I signed up with Daleys today, just so I could thank you. I have a Pinkabelle too. It is one of my best (young)trees. I'm about to buy some more specialty fruit trees from Daleys in a few days.

I didn't water it enough in heat wave.  It was however a great tree which did fruit for me with hand polinating.  I plan on getting another and taking more care of it.

Nice side branching, use clothes pegs above the buds to keep the new shoots horizontal.

Dwarf Apple - Pinkabelle (Seedling) 8/10

Loves Fruit Trees's Edible Fruits
Update: 1386 days 22hrs

I love my Pinkabelle....she's 8 months and has a nice formation with lovely leaves (before winter) I can't wait to pick some Pink Lady apples. This is a good choice! To me, it's much better than the Ballerina Apple Trees - though some gardeners might like them - the Pinkabelle grows 2 Metre x 1 Meter. It's more of a tree - it's nice to have branches!

My sister bought a 3 Way Grafted Apple Tree with Pink Lady, Fuji and Royal Gala (they are her favorites) and while it may be interesting to go for those, I have decided to buy the dwarf varieties.....a Pink Lady (that I have with the Pinkabelle) a Granny Smith for cross-polination and possibly a Fuji soon. For sometime, I wondered why all the fuss about Fuji apples until I tried some on sale one day and suprisingly, they tasted very similar to the Pink Lady apples. They are also very juicy! So they are a good option for pollinating Pink Lady apples all you fellow fans out there!

Planted 15th of November this year, did flower very well, but they were lost in the strong winds. Hoping that they will stick next season when the foliage is thicker.

Unfortunately it has powdery mildew, which it had when I purchased it, but as a newby I didn't know anything about pests and diseases...

there's lots of possible things for powdery mildew - apparently milk works well. I was surprised to find some in my courtyard (despite no spray watering) but haven't treated it yet
Diana says... [3574 days 4hrs ago]
One part milk to nine parts water is a preventative. If you can see symptoms, you probably need something stronger. Milk didn't do much for me, but regular seaweed solution has really helped in my garden. Diana.
Mish says... [3563 days 17hrs ago]
Thanks guys. I treated with Copper only twice and have found the hot weather to be more beneficial than spraying... fingers crossed for next season.

I really like the idea of an apple tree that naturally grows to only 2 or 3 metres rather than being restricted by rootstock. Any apple related bugs are much easier to control organically when in reaching distance!
