    In our opinion the best of the early apples. It's from the McIntosh group developed in New Jersey, USA in the 1950's. It ripens about 10 days later than Beauty of Bath. Creamy yellow skin striped scarlet, smallish in size with a lovely perfumed crisp and juicy flesh.

    A medium sized red striped yellow apple with a terrific crunch and reliably pleasant sweet flavour. It's become quiet well known in Australia, being for sale in many of our shops and supermarkets. It's actually about 90 years old, developed by New Zealander John Kidd in the 1930's as a cross between a Golden Delicious and another one of his selections,...

  • Ripens: February - March
    This is one of the largest varieties we grow. Just huge, rivaling Belle Cacheuse and Peasgood Nonesuch in size. And as the name suggests, the fruit are up to twenty ounces (566g) in weight!

  • Ripens: February - March
    Originated in Scotland in 1890, thought to be a seedling of Cox's Orange Pippin and the parent of Lord Lambourne. A particularly beautiful apple, with red stripes overlying a skin of yellow/green. The flesh is tender and melting, very juicy with just that perfect sweet/acid balance like a good mango, mandarin or pineapple. Very memorable.

  • Ripens: March - April
    A large and densely fleshed apple with a rich sweet aromatic flavour. The skin is often bumpy and a little russetted - yellowish overlaid with red and pink. It is an all-rounder: an apple for eating fresh, cooking and making cider. This apple feels quite weighty in the hand. An American Apple from Massachsetts in the 1830's. The American apples of the...

    Rome produces large brilliant glossy red fruit that resists bruising and is a heavy cropper. Good eating and becomes very sweet the riper it gets. Originating on the northern bank of the Ohio River in a town called Rome in the early 1800's where it appeared from a sucker below the graft of an orchard tree. Was grown commercially for some time in the USA and

  • Ripens: January
    A long narrow shaped pale yellow apple with white on the sunny side. Crisp, with high acid content making it quite zingy eaten fresh and excellent cooked. A seedling from a white transparent and like it's parent doesn't keep long. Interestingly, it died out in England, and we have sent propagating material back to the UK.

  • Ripens: March - April
    Allowed to ripen on the tree, the Golden Delicious develops into a large yellow coloured apple bursting with crunch, juice and sweetness. Often a splash of russet near the stem, tiny specks over the skin and an orange blush on the sunny side. Stores well. Discovered in USA at the end of the 1800's. An entirely better experience when left to ripen on the...

  • Ripens: April - May
    A smallish golden-green apple similar to a Golden delicious in colour who it's belived to be the parent of. Complete with the little flecks of russet and the russeted collar. It was found in West Virginia USA in 1804 by Thomas Grime, and being the parent of the Golden, makes this a truly historic apple. The flesh has a pleasant sweetness and a subtle...
