    I grow a Tom Putt in Aberdeen. The tree is 10+ years, is a large spreading and crops very well every year. We eat the apples fresh as well as for juicing. Both delicious. Very healthy but also very spreading. Needs space.

    I grew up with 2 of these trees in my Grandmothers garden in Suffolk. We were told that they were early cookers late eaters and always enjoyed them. They are a lovely eating apple and when they cook the skins go a beautiful pink. The trees are very old now, with broken branches and parts resting on the ground. But they still crop very well. A delicious and versatile apple.
