Small yellow round-conic fruit ripens early and should be pressed soon thereafter. Carr’s Ciderhouse and Preservation Orchard in Hadley, MA, makes an early-season cider blend focused on White Jersey and balanced with early sharp crabapple varieties such as Kerr or Hyslop. Try it with other early tart apples like Pomme d’Or, Dolgo crab or Winekist. Silvopasture orchardist and cidermaker Matt Kaminksy describes the juice as “full bodied with a strange unique flavor of parboiled maple sap, fenugreek and slightly under-ripe banana. Very aromatic. Highly recommended.”
Scionwood provided by Carr’s. May be susceptible to fireblight in some areas. Late bloomer. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
