Apple Lough Tree of Wexford

Apple Lough Tree of Wexford

An Irish heritage variety of early to mid-season dessert apple, Apple ‘Lough Tree of Wexford’ was originally found in a Co Wexford orchard. The fruit is small to medium-sized, the greenish-yellow skin almost completely covered with crimson streaks and stippling, giving a bright red appearance, sometimes slightly russeted. The flesh is crisp, sweet and juicy. The tree is vigorous, reliable and a heavy cropper, with good resistance to disease. Spur-bearer. Mid-season blossom. The fruit is best eaten straight from the tree. Very attractive when the fruit is ripe on the tree.

This Irish Heritage Apple variety was originally saved and propagated by Irish Seed Savers in Scarriff, County Clare.
