Sweetman Dwarfing

This is medium to large sized apple, with a greenish yellow skin when ripe. It's a reliably heavy cropper of very high quality sweet apples with a distinctive honey flavour. Quite unique and memorable. Unfortunately there is no reference anywhere to this apple in the literature, except that Mr Allan Doyle of Glendevie, Tasmania donated it to the Tasmanian Collection at Grove, Southern Tasmania in 1978.

Pollination Guide

  • Pollination is far simpler than most people think. Generally, unless self fertile simply get 2 or more different varieties in the same group (eg pears) to ensure adequate pollination. A more comprehensive explanation can be found in our Pollination Guide
