Hagloe Crab Cider Apple


Hagloe Crab Cider Apple

Fall. Vintage bittersweet cider apple. Hagloe, Gloucestershire, England.

One of the most famous of all English cider apples. In his 1884 The Fruit Manual, Robert Hogg notes that it produces “a liquor, which for richness, flavor and pure on the spot, exceeds perhaps every other fruit liquor which nature and art have produced.” It will be interesting to see what it can do on this side of the Atlantic. Small 2" flattened irregularly shaped fruit is yellow with some red blush and gray russet, which can give the skin a rough texture. Long stem in a deep narrow cavity. Flesh is soft and mealy, sweet at first with a bitter aftertaste.

Fedco may be the only North American source of the true Hagloe Crab. The apple received final release from APHIS in 2021, and we’re now pleased to be able to offer it. This is another variety we obtained from English cider historian John Teiser. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. Supply limited—order early! (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
