Trees planted in recent seasons
1
1 × Bramley Apple (in 22-23)
Malus domestica 'Bramley Seedling'

Apple trees are often managed to maximise fruit production, so they usually remain relatively small. Their pink-tinged white blossom in spring can rival that of cherry, and the fruit ripens through the summer, often ripening in late September.

There are dozens of different varieties that might offer whiter blossom, earlier fruit, and apples to suit every palate.

Bramley is the most popular cooking apple. It produces large green apples that retain their body when cooked. It is the classic fruit for making apple pie.

2
1 × Elstar (in 22-23)
Malus domestica 'Elstar'

Apple trees are often managed to maximise fruit production, so they usually remain relatively small. Their pink-tinged white blossom in spring can rival that of cherry, and the fruit ripens through the summer, often ripening in late September.

There are dozens of different varieties that might offer whiter blossom, earlier fruit, and apples to suit every palate.

A dessert apple producing a heavy and regular fruit crop. The crisp apples produced by this variety are greenish-yellow flushed with red and have an intense honeyed flavour.

1 × unknown (in 22-23)
4
1 × Dessert Pear 'Comice' (in 22-23)
Pyrus communis 'Doyenne Du Comice'

The domestic pear tree has the potential to become a large tree which can produce mountains of fruit.

Their white spring blossom rivals that of apples and cherries, and when they are not in flower, look out for small glossy leaves and deeply fissured bark on older trees.

An all-time classic dessert pear, one of the most popular on European farms. Very sweet, with perfectly juicy, melting flesh. Pale yellow when ripe, sometimes they develop a bit of russeting or a bit of a rosy flush. They are vigorous, upright, and heavy cropping. They flower late, so they are suitable for frosty places. It grows to 4m in height with a 3m spread.

5
1 × Pear (in 22-23)
Pyrus communis 'Conference'

The domestic pear tree has the potential to become a large tree which can produce mountains of fruit.

Their white spring blossom rivals that of apples and cherries, and when they are not in flower, look out for small glossy leaves and deeply fissured bark on older trees.

Mimosa is our Tree of the Month

One of the surest signs that winter is in its last gasp is the appearance of Mimosa blossom.

Admittedly, it's not a common sight, there are only 46 in the TreeTalk database, but when you see one in flower during February, it is guaranteed to stand out. Mimosas, or Silver Wattle trees, are a species of Acacia from Australia and consequently appear very exotic looking for London. Their evergreen composite leaves are comprised of hundreds of tiny leaflets. But it is the dazzling daffodil yellow blossom that will turn your head. Not only does it look amazing, it's deliciously fragrant too.
