Harry Masters Jersey Cider Apple


Harry Masters Jersey Cider Apple

Fall. Medium-full bittersweet cider apple. Often called Port Wine in north Somerset. Probably introduced by Harry Masters, Yarlington Mill, Woolston, Somerset, England, before 1900.

High-quality bittersweet variety recommended for blending with other fall varieties. Soft astringent tannin. (SG 1.056, acidity 2g/L, tannin 3.2g/L)

Becoming popular commercially in New England in recent years. One of the mainstays of Farnum Hill Cider in New Hampshire. Medium-large oblate-conic fruit, mostly covered with bright red stripes and blush, and a splash of yellow russet around the stem. Narrow upright tree form.

Harry Masters himself was the miller at Yarlington Mill. Harry Masters Jersey and cider apple Yarlington Mill are thought to be of the same parentage. Blooms midseason. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
