Malus domestica ‘jonagold’
Malus Domestica ‘Jonagold’ is a very well-known apple variety. Give the tree room to grow. It blooms in April and May with a white-pink blossom that develops into tasty apples. The fruit is large and reddish-yellow in colour with yellow-white juicy flesh. The taste is somewhat sweet and mildly sour. Apples are high in dietary fibre, vitamins and antioxidants. It is also the most widely eaten fruit in the Netherlands. Apples can be picked from late September to early October. It likes a sunny sheltered spot and preferably near another apple variety for pollination. For the first two to three years, it is a good idea to support the tree with tree stakes. This prevents the tree from blowing askew and breaking off newly formed roots. Make sure it gets enough water, especially in the first year. Proper pruning of apple trees is quite difficult. Usually, 3 to 5 main branches should remain on which side branches can grow.
