The Malus domestica ‘Pixie’ is a popular dessert apple tree which produces incredibly rich and fragrant fruits, with a high sugar level and balancing acidity. The skin of the Malus domestica ‘Pixie’ is a yellowy-green transitioning to an orange-red. As the name would suggest the fruits are small to medium sized with strong sweet-sharp flavour and an intense aroma.
Apple are one of the easier fruit trees to grow and are increasingly becoming more popular with gardeners. They are medium sized deciduous trees with flashy Spring flowers and ornamental or edible fruit in the Autumn.
The fruits should be ready to pick in the middle of October and peak in flavour after a couple of weeks storage, ripening period. If stored appropriately - in a cool dry place - they will keep until March.
The Pixie apple was developed at the National Fruit Trials farm in Kent, England. The first seedling was discovered in 1947, after many years of development they received the ‘Award of Merit’ form the Royal Horticultural Society in 1970.
