Freyberg Dwarfing

An amazing apple, drawing qualities from both it's parents - Golden Delicious and Cox's Orange Pippin. So it's easy to see why is so widely enjoyed. Medium sized fruit, the skin a lovely greenish yellow and has the tiny russet fleck similar to a Golden. It ripens midseason and hangs well on the tree. The taste is almost spicy and there is just a hint of anise, and it continues to develop flavour when ripe. It was bred by John Kidd in NZ along with Gala and Kidd's Orange Red. Looks like a greenish Golden Delicious, but the taste is distinctly a mix of Cox's as well. Very memorable and a favourite of everyone that tries it. One of our favourites.

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
