If you set out to plant exactly late varieties of apple trees in your garden, then the question inevitably arises before you: which varieties to prefer?

Let's get to know them better.

Variety description

Well, the name immediately becomes clear that it will not be about small apples. Fetus reaches a rather large size (up to 200g), and under favorable conditions and appropriate care, it can increase mass up to 400g! Apples look light green with a slight blush.

As maturation a little yellow. The shape is rounded, but not quite correct, wide at the base and slightly flattened. Orzhavnost is characteristic of this variety. The flesh has a sweet-sour taste, but the acid in it is less pronounced than that of the Antonovka variety, which is one of the “parents” of the Bogatyr variety.

Self tree has impressive dimensions and reaches 4.5 m in height, and the spreading of the branches can be 6 m. The crown is not particularly thick and there are no young branches in the center. The bark has a rich olive color, the leaves have a slight serration and pubescence from below.

The apple tree blooms in a pinkish color, but the flowers themselves are slightly smaller in size. The first fruits can be expected in the sixth year. It is recommended to remove them at the end of October.

Select advantages this variety.

The first - of course, excellent ability for long-term storage. Fruits may lie until May and even before the beginning of summer, without losing their presentation. Variety can be attributed to skoroplodny. The yield of apple trees is quite high and averages 60-80 kg. But this is not the limit. If you surround the tree with care and create favorable conditions, the figure can increase to 100 kg and even higher.

In addition, the apple tree pleases with fruits annually. We have already noted the pleasant taste qualities, it is worth recalling the high transportability, which is also inherent in this variety of apples. Winter hardiness of the tree is relatively high, the plant is not very susceptible to such disease as scab.

Disadvantages this variety of apples is not so much and, rather, they are aesthetic in nature. Some are not satisfied with the green color of apples, because for a rather long period they do not turn yellow, and besides, rust is inherent in them.

Care features

Conditions and the process of planting does not differ from other varieties of apple trees. The best option would be loamy soil, to which one should strive, adjusting its composition, adding peat, compost and river sand.

Without sufficient air saturation, the root system will suffer, which will certainly affect fruiting. In the first year you can not apply fertilizer.

Spring care It consists in early pruning and removal of old branches, as well as shortening the young ones. In early May, it is recommended to do the first spraying and a little later, after the buds swell, the second. This is done to prevent various diseases and pest control.

For feeding in the spring, it is better to use urea and nitrate, and as trace elements boric acid. It is recommended to sow siderat, which will regulate the level of nitrogen, next time, and by the autumn period it will have time to decompose and saturate the tree with nutrients.

Summer care consists in regular watering. In early autumn, it is necessary to whitewash the trunks of trees, and to feed them with superphosphate, compost, potassium, etc. in late autumn.

Sort Antonovka ordinary

More than once, even in our article, we mentioned the name of this variety, since it is Antonovka that is the original form for many new varieties and is very popular among breeders. Yes, and what to say. There is hardly a Russian person who does not know these apples. Therefore, it would be unfair not to recall them.

Winter apple varieties with photos and descriptions

Almost all varieties of winter apple trees (see photo with the name) have an excellent aroma, and it can persist for a long time. The rind of all winter-hardy fruits is much thicker than that of the early and middle-early ones. This also applies to the pulp - it is more solid. These features provide resistance to damage, prevent the processes of decay, and therefore ensures the quality of the fruit, even with prolonged storage.

It should be noted that the winter varieties of apple trees (reviews of experienced gardeners confirm this) are not always suitable for human consumption, if they are only to be picked from the tree. The fruits do not yet have such a rich taste, and many of them can be sour. The period of full ripening occurs approximately in 4-7 weeks, the fruit should lie down well.

Winter-hardy species of these fruit trees are classified into three categories:
