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!

This is a Keswick cross, so has  good genes. It is an early cooker, can be small unless thinned, but is very hardy and productive, a character of all the codlins. I came across a row of these near the motorway near Falkirk, they were very old and neglected, but still form a really productive and healthy hedgerow! It cooks to a nice fluff, or is a crisp eater.
