Apple ‘Discovery’ is a well known dessert variety with a fine, sweet flavour that brings to mind a hint of strawberries. Although often found in supermarkets, it has a short storage potential of just a couple of weeks, so it is best eaten when picked fresh from the tree. Any surplus fruits can be pressed to make a delicious juice. This early variety ripens in late August and reliably produces good yields with maturity. Apple rootstocks:M27 – Extreme dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 1.5m (5′)M9/ Pajam 9/ P9 – Dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 2.5m (8′)M26 – Dwarf reaching a mature height of 2.5-3m (8-10′)M6 – Semi dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 3m (10′)MM106 – Semi dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 4m (13′)This variety is not self-fertile. For the heaviest crops it is best grown with another variety. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as a suitable pollinator.
