Dwarf Apple - Tropical Anna

Bought this tree from Daleys six years ago. Has been well mulched (5 - 10cm leaf mulch) for last few years and we now have no issue with fruit fly. Beautiful apple and tree laden with fruit. The tree is netted for the birds but you can still see the fruit. I also heavily prune the tree each year.

This Apple is a semi dwarf on mm778 rootstock,nice and hardy , will keep in a large pot .I believe it to be fairly self fertile . However - I may end up with a tropic gold Dorsett,as I like golden delicious and they are much the same .

Our Tropical Apple - Anna - was thriving, and had small but delicious, crisp, red-delicious type apples. Then a bobcat driver accidentally ran over it. I still have a Dorsett Golden as a pollinator, but our replacement Anna has yet to fruit.This tre...

Growing well. Fruited in winter as well as wanted to fruit last summer but I removed the buds as didnt think the tree was strong enough to bear the fruit well.
