Late Fall. Full bittersweet cider apple. Martock, Somerset, England, 19th century. One of the most famous of the Somerset bittersweets. Best blended with other apples, it makes a strong rich cider.

Medium acidity, highly astringent, harsh and high in tannins. (SG 1.068, acidity 2.2g/L, tannin 4g/L) Round to slightly conic slightly greasy fruit, colored with a beautiful combination of dull opaque reds, yellows and russets.

In old English chesil means ‘pebble’—Chisel Jersey is small, hard and bitter!

Spreading tree may require encouragement to develop a strong central leader. Consistent cropper.

Closely related to Dabinett; they should not be relied upon to pollinate one another. One source recommends Harry Masters Jersey as a good companion for pollination, but as usual, most other apples should do the job. Late bloomer. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
