Apple Fruit Salad Trees have different varieties of Apples on the same tree. Apple Fruit Salad Trees are not only space saving, but they're also fast fruiting, giving fruit within two years. They are perfect for your balcony or backyard as they can be grown in pots, and espaliered along lattice and fences. Here's a complete guide to growing different apples on the same tree in the warmer and cooler climates of Australia.
We graft varieties that are suited to all climates of Australia, even the alpine areas of Australia. Choose from red, yellow or green skin apples, crunchy, juicy and full of flavour. All the apples cross-pollinate one another so only one tree is required.

Apple Fruit Salad Trees grow to 2-3 metres high by approximately 2 metres wide. They can be planted in the ground and also supported by espalier method to provide support as the tree grows along wires or framework. Secure branches with expandable ties to allow expansion as the branches grow. Find out more about the espalier method of growing Fruit Salad Trees here.

No, there's no need to plant two Fruit Salad Trees to cross-pollinate, as the grafts are chosen to pollinate each other.
The first fruits will appear in approximately 6-18 months. It's best to remove most of these fruits when they are the size of a tiny pea and allow the framework (branches) of all the grafts to develop first. This is especially important whilst the tree is young.
As the tree grows, thin out/reduce the amount of fruit that has set, always promoting branch growth as well as fruit production. Branch framework needs to be ahead of fruit production to carry the weight of the fruit and establish correct tree shape. More fruit may be allowed to set on any faster growing grafts however, as the fruit production will slow the growth of the branches. Always reduce the number of fruit on the slower growing varieties to allow more energy to go into developing the branches.
