Blenheim Orange Apple


Blenheim Orange Apple

Fall. From outside the walls of Blenheim Palace, 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 calls Blenheim “excellent for either dessert or culinary use.” Crisp and juicy. Keeps until about mid-December.

One of the most famous English heirlooms and one of the few varieties from England to be grown successfully in Maine early on, probably arriving here well before 1870. In 2014 we found four ancient Blenheim trees down near Boothbay. Our scionwood comes from the USDA collection in Geneva, NY. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
