Apple trees grow well in all regions of new Zealand cropping well in both warmer and cooler climates. Soil suitability depends on the roof stock that the variety is grafted onto, which also determines how large the tree will grow. They will start to produce fruit between its second to fifth year depending on rootstock. Best grown in a sunny, sheltered side with free draining soil. Water well during the early stages, during long dry periods and when the fruit is developing.
