Scion wood & fruit color

We carefully select scion wood from mature bearing trees. Despite this careful selection, it is possible that some variations may occur within varieties.

This variation is most prevalent in high colored mutations of varieties and spur type mutations. Environment and cultural practices, such as pruning, fertilizing and application of chemicals can affect the color formation at the time of apple maturity. These factors can moderate the genetic characteristics of color. Because of this we cannot accept responsibility for the fruit color and tree structure of any variety or any other defects.

The accepted industry standard for ‘off type’ trees is 10% variation either side of the selection norm.
