Pinkabelle has many exciting features for the home gardener!
It is a compact, spur bearing dwarf Cripps Pink and grows to approximately 2 metres tall by approximately 1 metre wide. It produces full size, export quality fruit. PINKABELLE DOES NOT REQUIRE PRUNING UNLESS A PARTICULAR TREE SHAPE IS REQUIRED!
Fruit matures approximately 7 - 14 days earlier than standard Cripps Pink (Pink Lady)- which means anytime from ANZAC Day, depending on what state you live in.
Pinkabelle is a true dwarf which means the tree is dwarfing - not the rootstock which is usually the case for other dwarfing apple trees. This means we can use a non dwarfing rootstock to grow our trees, which are generally more robust and water efficient.
Pinkabelle can be used in all sized gardens and has many uses including pots, tubs, small screens or hedges, specimen shrub/trees, feature plants for the courtyard, deck or balcony.
All apples need pollinators. Pinkabelle? is partially self fertile, which means it will set small amounts of fruit without a pollinator - HOWEVER - it will benefit from cross pollination, which will result in more fruit setting on your plant.
