Ashton Bitter Cider Apple

Malus spp. Early Fall. Full bittersweet cider apple. Dabinett x Stoke Red. GT Spinks intro, Long Ashton, England, 1947.

Astringent cider apple with strong tannin, high sugar (SG 1.060) and low acidity. Medium-sized round opaque orange-yellow fruit, blushed and striped with red. Very juicy. Ripens in early fall, but we’ve pressed them in late October with good results. Best blended with sharps and other bittersweet varieties. From 1903 until 2003, Long Ashton Research Station was the British center for the study of cider. Ashton bitter was resurrected from an old Long Ashton trial orchard and planted extensively in recent years in England and the U.S.

Scab free. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½–5' bare-root trees)
