Dr Hogg Dwarfing

A most impressively large apple named after a Scottish pomologist, Dr Robert Hogg, who compiled the Herefordshire Pomona. It's a large culinary apple, greenish yellow with prominent ribs from top to bottom and cooks to a beautiful aromatic fluff. Eating it fresh is pleasantly acid too, but not often finished in the one sitting because of it's size. It appears to be an offspring of Caville Blanc d'Hiver. Stores well.

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
