Apple Scarlet Crofton

Apple Scarlet Crofton

Though originally brought from England by the Croftons of Co. Sligo under the reign of Elizabeth I, dessert Apple Scarlet Crofton is nevertheless regarded as an Irish heritage variety. The fruit is medium-sized, flattened on one side, pale yellow to yellowish green with extensive, deep scarlet blush and streaking and net-like russeting. The flesh is greenish-white, crisp and juicy, and the flavour is outstanding, both sweet and spicy. The tree is of moderate vigour, upright and spreading, and a spur-bearer. Resistant to scab.

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