An excellent case in point being the MAGNUM® apple tree. A new tree variety patented by Carolus Fruit Trees, which accelerates and maximises the production volume in fruit from the time of planting.
The MAGNUM® trees saves on time, effort and costs for pruning, binding and fertilising.
This tree variety is typified by:
- a height of at least 2.5 meters
- a crown of productive branches at 3 levels for optimum exposure to light
- the uncut main trunk continues to grow
Comprehensive tests by Fruitconsult showed that, courtesy of their large tree volume, the MAGNUM® trees generate 25% more fruit than a leg tree for instance. In addition, the trees yield excellent quality fruit. Which means the added cost of the MAGNUM® apple trees is already recouped as early on as the 2nd year of production.
