Ellis Bitter

Ellis Bitter Cider Apple

Early Fall. Medium bittersweet cider apple. Newton St Cyres, Devon, Somerset, England.

Large oddly conic fruit—sometimes ribbed—mostly striped and blushed with red. White-fleshed, sweet, crisp and juicy. Soft, astringent, tannin. (SG 1.033-1.053, acidity 2g/L, tannin 2.4g/L)

Particularly useful for its early ripening, adding valuable bitterness to early-season cider pressings. Blend with other early dessert apples or cider varieties. Still grown in England’s West Country cider orchards and now being planted in the U.S.

Fast-growing large upright rangy open vigorous tree produces regularly. Midseason bloomer. Z4-6. Maine Grown. (3-6' bare-root trees)
