Hubbardston's Nonesuch Dwarfing

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 early 1800's still owed a lot to their European parents and Hubbardston's has more of a character of a Ribston Pippin than a Red Delicious.

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
