I desperately wanted this very pretty little apple to sweeten up over time, but it resolutely keeps an acidic hint. Very good to add to the cider mix though! Quite prolific even on young trees.

This is a distinctly Cox like apple,  ripening here late September. Fairly productive and, unlike Cox, has healthy clean fruit too. So if you like a tasty crisp apple this may be for you.

This popular apple in Norway, was bred in Canada from a Red Melba cross. It has been on trial with me for a few years now. It is a bright red oval apple , and ripens in mid August. It is sweet and juicy , very productive on M26, and so a very useful early eater. I guess you need to use it quickly. Q

Will continue to report on this lovely variety!

What a strange apple this is. It is distinct in the nursery with it’s long silvery leaves. Produced and named by David Storrie, a nurseryman in The Carse of Gowrie, Perthshire. Crisp small bright apples are early and soon go over, so definitely to be eaten quickly. Rosebery was Prime Minster by the way!
