Discovery Semi-Dwarfing

An early apple popular in the UK. Found in Essex in the 1940's it's a seedling of Worcester Pearmain. Like other early apples, the flavour is light and an on the acid side, but crisp and juicy. An attractive round shape if a little squat. It develops a bright red cheek over a light greenish yellow background. Well worth considering as an early eating apple.

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
