Tremlett's Bitter

Post by PA_Docent » Sun Apr 15, 2012 8:14 am

I planted a Tremlett's Bitter in early March 2012 along with 11 other apple trees. All of the apples planted this year have budded out, however Tremlett's Bitter has not. I planted all new apple trees in enriched topsoil and watered thoroughly. Does Tremlett's Bitter set out new growth so late in the season? The single branch is still pliable so I am hoping it will start budding soon.

It is a very late blooming variety, so you will probably just have to be patient!

Tremlett's Bitter finally budded out last week. Golden Russet has not flowered yet so maybe it can be used to cross pollinate when my Tremlett's Bitter flowers (expect it flower next year).

BTW - Ananas Reinette seems to be a long term bloomer. This is the first year it has flowered for me, however the branch tips started blooming first, now flower buds are forming all along the branches. I have flowers already past prime, just open/opening, and buds just forming so may be able to cross with Tremlett's also. Unusual apple to say the least.

Is there a late flowering crab apple that I can plant nearby for pollinating Tremletts? My Kingston Black is also late starting this year.

I was going to suggest a Wickson, but it's a midseason bloomer. There might be some overlap though but i'm not sure how effective that would be.

I am actively considering the Wickson crab for my home orchard.
