Apple Monty's Surprise

The apple variety Monty's Suprise was discovered by chance growing on a road side in Wanganui and has become one of the most talked about fruit tree varieties worldwide. This wild seedling bears large fruit with very high levels of procyanidins as well as quercetin flavanoid compounds. These are known to be very beneficial in the prevention of some forms of cancer that is lacking in many modern apple varieties. The fruit is large, ripening in April with green skin blushed red. The fruit is crisp and tart and can be used as an eating or cooking apple.

Plant Care

Apples in general require a fertile well drained soil and should be planted in a sheltered location. Because of the size of the fruit Monty's Suprise should be pruned each winter to remove any weak branches or poor branch unions that may breakk or split under the weight of the fruit.


We produce Apple Monty's Suprise in a 35 litre advanced specimen tree grade so as it can be planted either in a home orchard or as a small deciduous shade tree in a more compact garden.
