Harrison Cider Apple


Harrison Cider Apple

Malus spp. Mid-Late Fall. Vintage sharp cider apple. Parentage unknown. South Orange, Essex County, New Jersey, as early as 1712.

One of the most renowned American cider apples, dating from the early days of domestic cidermaking. Harrison cider was famous and considered to be better than champagne. Medium-small oval yellow-skinned fruit. Rich firm dry yellow flesh. According to William Coxe in 1817, it makes a “high coloured, rich, and sweet cider of great strength, commanding a high price in New-York, frequently ten dollars and upwards per barrell.”

Vigorous productive tree. A Harrison revival is underway in several locations on the East Coast. Performing well in our central Maine trials. Appears to be plenty hardy. Z4. Maine Grown. (Standard: 3–6' bare-root trees)
