Its Apple Week! The apple is the King of Autumn fruit and now is the time to the celebrate its reign!
When a lot of the other Autumn produce is winding down for the year, many varieties of apple are still dutifully cropping, and can be enjoyed well into the winter if picked and stored correctly.
This month, we can't get enough of the cracking self fertile Keelie apple tree in particular, which produces a bumper crop of sharp yellow apples every year. The Keelie apple tree really is a lovely little variety, which has been grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock so it will always stay small and can be grown in a patio pot. The most manageable way to grow your own apples.
The fruit of the Keelie apple tree has a lovely crisp texture and tastes beautifully balanced, with the perfect combination of tart and sweet, which means it is super versatile. Try using it in a mix with other apple varieties to make pies and puddings as well as baking whole and eating straight from the tree.
We want you to love this autumn fruit as much as we do, so the Keelie Apple tree is on sale for Apple Week. Use the discount code appleoffer30 to get 30% off the price of the tree! But hurry, the offer is only available for the duration of Apple Week, and will expire at midnight on Sunday 25th October.
