Apple James Grieve

Apple James Grieve

Bred in Scotland at the end of the 19th century, Apple James Grieve is a particularly hardy dual-purpose apple, a good choice for colder areas. The fruit is yellow-green, flushed and striped with orange-red; the flesh is savoury, melting, and very juicy, acid at first, but sweetening as it ripens, becoming good to eat fresh. Keeps its shape when cooked, and is an excellent juicer. The tree is moderately vigorous, and a spur-bearer. Frost-resistant flowers, and a very good pollinator. Fruit has a tendency to drop when ripe. Some susceptibility to scab and canker in wetter areas. Holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
