Breakwell’s Seedling Cider Apple


Breakwell’s Seedling Cider Apple

Early Fall. Bittersharp cider apple. Seedling discovered near Monmouth, Wales, c. 1890. Grafted by George Breakwell and later propagated and sold by UK cider giant H.P. Bulmer & Co.

Makes a light thin cider on its own and is best blended with other early varieties. That said, Dunkertons of Herefordshire makes an award-winning single varietal Breakwell’s cider. Small to medium, often irregularly shaped fruit is yellow with a light red blush and darker red broken stripes. Fruit tends to fall from the tree when ripe in late September to early October and should be pressed soon thereafter. Heavy cropper. Scab resistant. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
