Everett Cunningham Cider Apple


Everett Cunningham Cider Apple

Fall-Winter. Bittersharp cider apple. Seedling. Hibbert’s Gore, Maine.

Quite astringent, not very bitter and mildly sharp. Small to medium roundish-oblate fruit, slightly greasy, mostly yellow with a very large russet patch surrounding the stem. Closely resembles Silver Cup, the English bittersweet; we bet even 19th-century. British apple expert Robert Hogg couldn’t tell the two apart. Introduced to us by Karen Keller, who said, “People came from as far as Newport to buy Everett’s cider.” She calls the apple Behind the Shed; the huge spidery tree is clearly a seedling growing out of the shed foundation wall behind her house. Betty Glidden, who grew up next door to Everett, told Karen: “Why, we just always called them Old Everetts’ Cider Apples.”

Recommended for all cidermakers in colder districts. Uncertain bloom time. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3-6' bare-root trees)
