Claygate Pearmain is in flowering group 4. Claygate Pearmain is a triploid variety and cannot pollinate other varieties. It needs to be pollinated by another tree of a different variety nearby. You can either plant a self-fertile variety (which will pollinate itself and the Claygate Pearmain) or you can plant two pollination partners which must each be of different varieties and able to cross-pollinate each other as well as the Claygate Pearmain. If you need further advice on this just get in touch.
Claygate Pearmain is well-suited to the climate of the northern states. In fact this is a variety that often does better in the USA than in its native England, where summers are often too short for its liking.
Claygate Pearmain is a reliable variety, not greatly troubled by disease. The tree is of average vigour and crops well.
Discovered in the early 19th century by English apple enthusiast John Braddick, growing near the village of Claygate in Surrey, England. Its ancestry is unknown.
