If you are establishing an apple orchard, you may want to include a tree that offers later harvesting. The Apple Laxton's Superb is a great choice as the fruit is ready for picking around mid to late October.
Laxton's Superb Apple Tree (Dessert) is a sweet flavoured classic eating apple. It stands out with a greenish-yellow skin flushed with deep red and purple stripes. You will notice that the side facing the sun tends to be redder, while the opposite side is streaked with yellow, orange and red. Some fruits have russeting over the surface.
Apple Laxton has a feel-good old fashioned appearance. The flesh is pale and firm, crunchy and juicy and can be eaten straight off the tree. This is your classic dessert apple that can be used in cooking. Try your hand at an apple tarte tatin or make a delicious grandma-style apple pie smothered in cream.
Malus domestica 'Laxton's Superb' has good resistance to frost and makes a great alternative to 'Cox's Orange Pippin' for those people living in colder areas. You will need to plant another tree from the same flowering group near by to guarantee cross pollination - Arthur Turner is a good partner. Laxton's Superb Apple enjoys full sun and fertile, well drained soil. When left unpruned it will reach heights of 4-5m in a 10 year period.
We offer Malus domestica 'Laxton's Superb' as a rootstock MM106, semi-dwarfing, which is tolerant of a range of soils. This is the most widely used rootstock and should be planted with a spacing of 4.5m between the rows for best results.
