Dabinett Cider Apple

Late Fall. Medium-bittersweet cider apple. Probably a seedling of Chisel Jersey. Middle Lambrook, Somerset, England.

(SG 1.057, acidity 1.8g/L, tannin 2.9g/L) One of the most popular cider varieties in Somerset today and one of the mainstays of Poverty Lane Orchards.

At a MOFGA workshop, Steve Wood of Poverty Lane and Farnum Hill Ciders said, “If you’re going to plant one bittersweet, plant this one.”

Medium-sized roundish fruit covered with brownish brick-red stripes and blush. Sugar content fair and fermentation moderate. High-quality well-balanced low-acid cider with a soft-tasting tannin. Picked last week of October, usually blended with other late varieties.

Crops annually. Grower-friendly tree with flat lateral branches may require help in developing a strong central leader. Not pollen compatible with Chisel Jersey. Midseason bloom. Z4-7. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
