    • Easy to eat, and easy to grow, ‘Katy’ needs little introduction. A staple of children’s lunchboxes for decades, this attractive medium-sized apple, usually bright red over a light green-yellow background, is very juicy, mild in flavour and in a good year, has a hint of strawberry. A bonus for gardeners is this variety produces an abundance of blossom over a long period, so is very useful to aid in pollinating other apple varieties, sitting as it does in pollinator group 3.
       
    • Garden care: Keep the base of the tree weed free, fertilise at the beginning of each year and water regularly during hot, dry spells. The main prune should be done in the winter as long as it isn't frosty or freezing. Take out the 3D’s (dead, dying and diseased wood) and create an open shape. Then reduce the leaders back by a third. Aim to create an airy structure without any crisscrossing branches. Summer prune in August by shortening any side shoots (or laterals) which are longer than 20cm back to three leaves. This will allow the sun to ripen the fruit and encourage more fruit buds. Make sure that the growth you’re cutting away feels firm to the touch.
       
    • Pollination information: This apple belongs to pollination group 3, so you will need to plant one other different variety of apple to guarantee cross-pollination, and a subsequent bumper crop. Ideally this should come from the same pollination group, however it is possible to use one from group 2 or 4 as well.
