Chisel Jersey

Chisel Jersey Cider Apple

Late Fall. Full bittersweet cider apple. Martock, Somerset, England, 19th century. One of the most famous of the Somerset bittersweets. Best blended with other apples, it makes a strong rich cider.

Medium acidity, highly astringent, harsh and high in tannins. (SG 1.068, acidity 2.2g/L, tannin 4g/L) Round to slightly conic slightly greasy fruit, colored with a beautiful combination of dull opaque reds, yellows and russets.

In old English chesil means ‘pebble’—Chisel Jersey is small, hard and bitter!

Spreading tree may require encouragement to develop a strong central leader. Consistent cropper.

Closely related to Dabinett; they should not be relied upon to pollinate one another. One source recommends Harry Masters Jersey as a good companion for pollination, but as usual, most other apples should do the job. Late bloomer. Z4-7. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
