Laxton’s Fortune is not a particularly large apple or a heavy cropping tree. It is a mid-season apple which ripens well on the tree in mid September. It has a wonderful taste and is sweet and particularly juicy when fully ripe. It needs to be pollinated well, as it is not self-fertile. Good pollinators are for example Red Pippin also called Fiesta, Red Falstaff and Egremont Russet to name a few. It is most suitable for growing on rootstock M26. It can then be planted within a reasonably small space. Keeping quality 3 to 4 weeks if kept really cool, such as in the bottom of the fridge.
