St Cecilia Apple
History & Discovery
Raised by John Basham & Sons of Bassaleg in Monmouthshire in 1900 from a seedling of Cox's Orange Pippin. This juicy apple was a popular variety and has an intense aromatic flavour. The flavour is said to be at its most exquisite on St Cecilia's Day (Nov 22nd). St Cecilia is the patron saint of music.
St Cecilia is a vigorous and heavy cropping tree. Pick in October and use December to March.

All fruit trees are grafted onto rootstocks. The rootstocks determine eventual tree size.
Bigger trees are more robust & produce more fruit, but take up more space.
Always choose a bigger rootstock if you need extra anchorage or your soil is in poor (very wet, dry or rocky). Small trees cannot compete with grass and weeds.
Select your rootstock by using the paypal button corresponding to the eventual size of tree you desire. You will have the option to select the number of trees you wish to order on the Paypal page.
