Apple Discovery

Apple Discovery

A seedling of Apple Worcester Pearmain discovered in Essex the late 1940s, Apple Discovery shares its parent’s early fruiting, brilliant colour and strawberry flavour. The fruit is small to medium sized, round, slightly flattened, and shiny red, with juicy, pale cream-coloured flesh, sweet-sharp with a hint of strawberry. Apple Discovery makes a compact, trouble-free tree, suitable for the smaller garden. Spur-bearer, and very hardy. Excellent disease-resistance, particularly to scab, so a good choice for areas where this is a problem. Like all early apples, the fruit does not keep, but any excess can be juiced.
