Apple Beauty of Bath

Apple Beauty of Bath

An old, very early dessert apple, bred in Somerset and very widely grown in Ireland, where it was especially popular with children. Apple ‘Beauty of Bath’ produces slightly flattened, medium-sized, pale greenish-yellow fruit striped with red, juicy and with a good sharp flavour, the last to ripen being sweeter. The flesh is cream-coloured, often with a pink stain, with a good balance of sweet and acid. Spur-bearer. Blossom fairly resistant to frost damage. Has a tendency to drop its fruit as it ripens; spread straw under the tree to prevent bruising. Like all early apples, it does not keep, so eat fresh and juice any excess for a pretty, pinkish juice. Apple Beauty of Bath remains popular, not just because it’s one of the first to crop but because it’s very resistant to scab, an increasing problem in Irish conditions.
