Apple Brown Crofton

Apple Brown Crofton

An Irish heritage variety of dessert apple, bred by the Crofton family of Longford House, Sligo. Slightly flattened, round, medium-sized fruit, greenish-yellow with dark red flush and stripes, overlaid with russeting; the flesh has a rich, sweet and sharp flavour, improving the longer it is left on the tree. Vigorous, upright, spreading tree, with good disease resistance. Fruit has a tendency to crack. Apple Brown Crofton is a triploid variety, so needs two pollination partners for all three to bear fruit.

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