Blenheim Orange Dwarfing

One of the most famous English apples, originating around 1740 near Blenheim Castle, Oxford, England. Rather large in size with orangey yellow skin streaked with red. The flesh is coarse and yellow, but rich and aromatic in flavour. This is a true dual purpose apple - great eaten fresh or cooked (goes fluffy). Ripens early March.

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
