Varieties 

 

Beauty of Bath is a very attractive early season English Dessert Apple, red flushed in colour. They have good flavour which, depending on when picked, can range from mildly sharp to sweeter as it ripens, excellent for eating fresh from the tree or ideal for juicing.

 

Braeburn A popular and well known late season Dessert Apple with crisp juicy flesh and an excellent flavour and also stores well.

 

Bramley Seedling is the definitive English cooking Apple. In terms of flavour it ranks as one of the worlds great culinary apples. Bramley Seedling is a vigorous easy to grow variety with attractive blossom. As a triploid variety it does require two different pollinating Apple trees to ensure successful pollination.

 

Cox Orange Pippin is the classic English dessert Apple with its striking orange-red colouring and wonderful aromatic flavour. Although best known for eating it is very versatile and can be used for juicing and cooking.

 

Discovery is a popular early Apple which is easy to grow and has excellent natural disease resistance. Best eaten freshly picked but also excellent for juicing with a well balanced sharp/sweet flavour.

 

Egremont Russet is a classic English russet Apple with a moist flesh and a delicate sweet “nutty” flavour. A versatile Apple which is especially good with cheese.

 

Ellison’s Orange is a superb traditional dessert apple closely related to Cox’s Orange Pippin but with noticeably juicier flesh. It has a background aniseed note which enhances the aromatic flavour.

 

Elstar is an attractive late season apple with a very good flavour. A high quality apple,  related to Golden Delicious, but with a more intense “honeyed” flavour. It also has good keeping qualities.

Gala are a well known mid-season apple, with a lovely sweet flavour, eaten straight from the tree. GGala is also a good variety for juicing, with a rich sweet flavour.

Golden Delicious, picked fresh from the tree is very different to the shop bought Apple. Picked late in the autumn when properly ripe, this crisp sweet apple, is difficult to beat. Also one of the best apples for storage, retaining flavour and crispness for several months in a cold store or fridge.

 

Golden Pearmain

Pink, Flushed fruit, which is ready to harvest in mid-Autumn. Best eaten out of hand or for cider making! 

 

Greensleeves

A popular garden variety which produces regular heavy crops of sweet, golden yellow fruit which is ready in September. 

 

Idared is an attractive late season Apple, originating from Idaho in the USA. It has a mild flavour and can be used for both cooking and eating. It is an excellent Apple for juicing and has exceptional keeping qualities.

 

James Grieve is an outstanding dual purpose apple. Originating in Scotland, it is a very juicy Apple, producing plenty of sharp tasting juice. A mid-season variety that picked early is very sharp and refreshing and good for cooking, but does keep its shape when cooked. As it ripens, the flavour sweetens, and becomes quite mild. It is an excellent Apple to eat with cheese and is also a good pollinator.

 

Katy is one of the best early/mid-season varieties. It is very reliable, producing an abundance of attractive red apples which are juicy with a sharp flavour. Katy is a versatile apple, used for cooking and juicing and is also used for cider making! The tree grows in a neat fashion and rarely needs pruning and the spring blossom is attractive and long lasting making it an excellent pollinator.

 

Laxton's Superb

A classic English dessert apple with juicy, green fruits, flushed red and sweet in flavour. 

Lord Lambourne is a popular versatile apple with a pleasing uniform shape and a lovely orange flush  over green, with a hint of russet. The flesh is crisp and creamy-white with a strong juicy flavour. A good mid season apple for the garden.

 

Spartan

A super little eating apple with a glorious red colour, deepening to maroon when fully ripe, crisp white flesh. 

Summerred

Lovely sweet red summer apple which is self fertile and reliable crops in August.

Worcester Pearmain
