What fruit varieties are suitable for Northern Ireland?

Question

Asked by: George  from Belfast, 25-Jan-2018

I'm interested in growing some eating apples and other fruits, i've a Bramley tree (good fruiting) and a pear (poor fruiting size and ripening) living in Northern Ireland. Are there some eating apple/pear/nut trees that i should / could grow sucessfully in a large garden with a southerly aspect?

Answer

Thanks for your interesting enquiry. I am not surprised to hear that your Bramley is doing well and the pear less well - that is what I would expect in your climate. Have a look at the following page on our website which lists varieties suitable for north west Scotland - your climate is less extreme so most of these should be happy in your area:
