Apple Dabinett

Apple Dabinett

In the early 20th century, a William Dabinett found this apple, named Dabinett after him, as a chance seedling in a Somerset hedgerow, since when it has become very widely grown for its excellent cider and ease of cultivation. Small, green, aromatic apples, sometimes flushed or flecked with red, produce a bitter-sweet juice of such quality that it can be used for single varietal ciders. Small, upright, spreading tree, cropping reliably and well; spur-bearer. Resistant to scab and canker. A good choice where there’s room for only one cider apple, or where late frosts are a risk. Incompatible with Chisel Jersey.
