Fruit ripening time: February - March


An excellent apple for blended cider. The juice is very bitter sharp, and more intense than the parent variety “Foxwhelp”.

Acidic, with some sweetness, creating a good quality, hard cider.


A medium to large fruit, with pale yellow skin and a bright red stripe.


A vigorous variety, producing good yields. It can tend towards biannual cropping.


Uses: Cider apple. The astringency makes this apple unpalatable for fresh eating.

Stores well but should be used within 2 weeks of harvest for the best results.

Dwarf: Can be kept to 1.5 m and grown in containers. Must be staked.


Semi-dwarf: 3 - 5 m tall, depending on shape
