DESCRIPTIONIdared - this is a late winter variety that bares fruit early, annually and abundantly. The fruits are medium-sized and spherical. The intensely bright red skin has a blurred blush, and the flesh is firm, juicy, and slightly sour.
ADVICESThe tree is best planted in a sunny position. It grows well in fertile, sandy-loam soil which is moderately moist, and has an optimum pH in the range of 6,2-6,7.
To stimulate future growth the tree should be pruned in the first year immediately after planting. Formative pruning should be executed on the main stem 20 cm above where the planned future branches will grow. The other branches should also be cut, reducing their length by one third. The best time to prune the apple tree is annually in the spring. Idared pollination requires the presence of other varieties flowering at the same time. Best results can be achieved by planting with varieties Celeste, Ligol, Mclntosh, Pilot, Rubin, Szampion, Cortland, Delikates, James Grieve.
