Dabinett Cider Apple

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

One of the most popular cider varieties in Somerset today and one of the mainstays of Poverty Lane Cider Orchards in NH. 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.” Sugar content fair and fermentation moderate. High-quality well-balanced low-acid cider with a soft-tasting tannin. (SG 1.057, acidity 1.8g/L, tannin 2.9g/L) Medium-sized roundish fruit covered with brownish brick-red stripes and blush. 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. May be susceptible to fireblight in some locations. Midseason bloom. Z4. Maine Grown. (Semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
