M9 rootstock, semi-dwarf reaching up to 6ft.
Recommended for small gardens as a dwarf bush or trained against a wall.
Will pollinate with a wide range of other apple varieties
Sweet and juicy dessert apple became quite popular after lyddal sold them for £3.99 last year or year before.(know a buyer there)

M9 is dwarf root stock so wont get much bigger than 6-8 foot, 30 to 40 apples seems a big claim esp in first year, but i suppose it the perfect apple producing conditions, which isnt likely! but that may be once its older and more established

'Sweet flavour and a delicious tangy bite' is all i can find on the variety Diva

But worth a go! to see.
