An apple a day keeps the doctor away, so why not grow your own? The lovely Malus domestica ‘Jonagold’, more commonly known as the Apple Jonagold tree, produce some of the largest golden apples with stunning red mottles. It also delights with a display of delicate white flowers in the month of May that will add a touch of elegance to your garden.
As you bite into your first homegrown apple, a mix between a golden delicious and Jonathan, get lost in an explosion of sweet, yet acidic flavours from the crisp skin, followed by the juicy white flesh beneath. Enjoy these apples by juicing them into apple juice, or use them in your favourite salads. Family coming over? Dip them in caramelised sugar and transform them into the most delicious sticky toffee apples.
Your Malus domestica Jonagold Tree will need to be planted near a site with another tree in the same flowering group. This tree is offered as a rootstock MM106, semi-dwarfing, which is tolerant of a range of soils including grassed orchards and poor soils. This is the most widely used rootstock. Plant with a spacing of 4.5m between the rows for best results. When left unpruned it will reach heights of 4-5m in a 10-year period.
Starting a home orchard is not difficult and offers wonderful feel-good rewards. Choose the glorious Malus domestica 'Jonagold' as your first tree.
