Maltster - Pollination Partners?

Postby Jill Oxford » Sun Oct 30, 2011 8:07 pm

Hi We have purchased 2 Maltster on M111 root stock can anybody suggest a good dessert pollination partner for them and also where we can buy them (on M111)?

I checked my records of flowering, in my own orchard and find that those
flowering in the first week, with Malster include Epicure [Early season], Fortune, Katy, Red
devil, Discovery[Early], Beauty of bath[Early], Adams pearmain[ late] and Duke
of Devonshire[ late]. Trees on M111 are hard to find, but South Lakes Orchard Group may have some. Or you could graft your own next spring - NCOG will get some M111 stock.
