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.

Product Details

Sport of Norfolk Royal, Gloucester, UK, 1983

"So delicious, I planted one on my parents' burial plot" raves one Orange Pippin reviewer. I can think of no greater compliment to either apple or parent.

Norfolk Royal Russets are beautiful apples. Almost entirely covered in russet with a crimson blush, you'll enjoy them with your eyes before using your mouth. The apples are very crisp and sweet, with a melting texture and strong pear flavor.

As with most early-ripening varieties, Norfolk Royal Russet apples should be monitored closely as harvest approaches. They ripen fairly rapidly and will soften on the tree over the course of several days if not promptly picked.

Brix: 14
Harvest: Early September
Flowering: Mid/Late-Season
