Suntan apple trees

Malus domestica
Suntan
Suntan is listed in the RHS Plants for Pollinators
  • Picking season: Late
  • Self-fertility: Not self-fertile
  • Flowering group: 5

Suntan is a large apple, notable for its well developed aromatic flavours and balancing acidity. If you like strong fruity apple flavours it makes a great choice. The apples have a sharp flavour if eaten straight from the tree, which mellows and develops after a few weeks.

Suntan couples its excellent flavours with the classic English orange-flushed hues, making it an attractive apple for the fruit bowl.
