Fruit ripening time: January - February


An early apple with a very memorable, sweet-honey flavour. In many ways, the look and flavour of Sweetman are reminiscent of a good Golden Delicious, a taste that won’t disappoint.


A medium sized apple. The skin is a green-yellow with a slight red blush on the sunny side. The flesh is a creamy white, very crisp and juicy. Best enjoyed freshly picked at their peak.

Will produce heavy crops.


Uses: Excellent fresh eating apple. Good for juicing and drying. As with most early apples, the storage time is fairly short.


Tree Size:

Dwarf: Can be kept to 1.5 m and grown in containers. Must be staked or grown on a trellis.


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


Pollinators: Belle Cacheuse, Bulmer’s Norman, Cox’s Orange Pippin, Cripps Pink, Fuji, Gala, Granny Smith, Jonathan, Kingston Black, Lady in the Snow, Sundowner, early white flowering Crabapples, especially Manchurian Crabapple.
