The grafted Dwarf Golden Dorsett Apple has similarities with the Golden Delicious, however it’s yellow/green skin also often ends up with a pink blush in places. It has a lovely crisp, sweet and refreshing flavour.
It’s a low-chill variety ideally suited to growing in South East Queensland and generally starts fruiting within 2-3 years.
Growing to a height of between 2 - 3.5 metres, this beautiful apple tree can be comfortably kept pruned to 1.8 - 2 metres high and 1.5 - 2 metres wide. Ideally suited for those wishing to grow their fruit trees in pots, though is equally suited to planting in the ground.
The Dwarf Golden Dorsett Apple requires a second variety for cross-pollination to produce fruit. Dwarf Anna or Dwarf Tropic Sweet are well-suited partners for Golden Dorsett.
They are a semi-deciduous tree, so will often shed all or most of their leaves in Winter. They benefit from being in a protected sunny position.
