The apple varieties listed below are orchard favorites and highly recommended for fresh eating. Many of these varieties also make fantastic cider due to their high sugar content and ample acidity. I've highlighted a few standouts in the "Also Cider!" section.

I offer one hint as you go about your selection: Hone in on the 'ugly' apples. How did such unremarkable fruits find hospitable homes for centuries without fail? Flavor, my friend, flavor.

Claygate Pearmain

Product Details

Chance seedling discovered by John Braddick, Surrey, UK, 1822

Claygate Pearmain is yet another russet apple that looks identical to half the cultivars in our catalog yet tastes entirely unique. Claygate Pearmain apples are crisp, sweet, and strongly aromatic - with a fruity and nutty bouquet.

Having survived sheep, scythes, and the opinion of discerning Victorians, Claygate Pearmain overcame incredible odds to grow from a discarded core in a hedge to winning a 'First Class Certificate' from Britain's Royal Horticural Society in 1921.

Claygate Pearmain trees are scab-resistant and cold-hardy. As a triploid cultivar, Claygate Pearmain trees are vigorous, and will not pollinate other varieties.

Brix: 16.7 (from Geneva)
Harvest: Early/mid-October
Flowering: Mid-season
