Heritage Apple Sale

The National Trust’s annual Heritage Apple Sale is an opportunity to savour the wonderful tastes of heritage apples from your own backyard. The Trusts’ gardening team has selected around 40 different apple varieties from the National Trust collection, providing an amazing variety of shapes, colours and flavours that you won’t find at the supermarket. From the buttery richness of ‘Ribston Pippin’, to the tang of ‘Pine Golden Pippin’ and the highly sought after ‘Cox’s Orange’ and ‘Bramley Seedling’, there is something for all tastes.

All trees have been grafted on-site by our gardening team onto rootstocks well suited to home gardens. Our gardening team will also be on hand to offer advice on growing a great crop.

Entry to the sale is free. If you a buy a tree at the sale, entry to the Gardens is included. All apple varieties are $30.
