Yarlington Mill Cider AppleFall. Medium-bittersweet cider apple. Yarlington, near North Cadbury, Somerset, England, 1898.
Rich brown low-acid mild lovely aromatic fruity cider, not aggressively tannic. Above-average sugar content. (SG 1.053-1.075, acidity 2.2g/L, tannin 3.2g/L) Slow to medium fermentation.
Medium-sized yellow conical fruit with a pinkish blush and overspreading darker red stripes. Considered an all-round excellent cider variety: reliable, productive and adaptable to varying conditions including reports of thriving in Zone 3. The other favorite bittersweet (see Dabinett) of Steve Wood at Farnum Hill Cider. Highly recommended for home and commercial cider plantings. You may need to head back the leader in early years to encourage strong laterals. Midseason bloomer. Z4-6. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees; semi-dwarf: 2½-5' bare-root trees)
