Claygate Pearmain is in flowering group 4. Claygate Pearmain is a triploid variety and cannot pollinate other varieties. It needs to be pollinated by another tree of a different variety nearby. You can either plant a self-fertile variety (which will pollinate itself and the Claygate Pearmain) or you can plant two pollination partners which must each be of different varieties and able to cross-pollinate each other as well as the Claygate Pearmain. If you need further advice on this just get in touch.
Claygate Pearmain is a reliable variety, not greatly troubled by disease. The tree is of average vigour and crops well. It grows best in southern areas as it needs a fairly long ripening period.
Discovered in the early 19th century by English apple enthusiast John Braddick, growing near the village of Claygate in Surrey, England. Its ancestry is unknown.
