The flavour of home-grown apples, Malus domestica , beats that of shop-bought varieties any day. What’s more, a much greater variety of cultivars is available if you grow your own.
Malus domestica benefits from growing in a sheltered, sunny spot, where the blossom will attract the greatest variety of pollinators and where the sun will ripen the fruit. Mulch annually and water in dry spells.
