Blenheim Orange

Blenheim Orange Apple

Fall. Woodstock, Oxfordshire, England, before 1800.

Large beautiful rich-yellow oblate fruit with a prominent red blush and a big russet splash surrounding the stem. The Apples of New York deems it “excellent for either dessert or culinary use.” Crisp and juicy. Keeps until about mid-December.

Probably first arrived in Nova Scotia and then on to Maine. One of the few English apples to thrive here early on, two others being Ribston Pippin and Sops of Wine.

In the fall of 2014 we visited John Welsh IV and his family at Willowbrook Farm down on the coast, settled nearly 200 years ago by the Cunningham family and eventually purchased by an earlier John Welsh in 1866. We saw six ancient trees there, four of them being what I have identified as Blenheim Orange.

Willowbrook Farm provided scionwood. Blooms midseason. Z4-7. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)
