Apple Ecklinville Seedling

Apple Ecklinville Seedling

An Irish heritage culinary apple, raised from a pip at Ecklinville, near Belfast, in the late 18th century, Apple Ecklinville Seedling was once widely grown commercially. Very large, round, flattened fruit, pea-green turning to yellow, with dots of russet and a ‘greasy’ skin; it bruises easily, which is not a problem for home growers. The flesh is soft, white, juicy and with an outstanding flavour, not too sharp, cooking to a delicious purée; also one of the best bakers. Apple Ecklinville Seedling is a good cropper, vigorous, but shapely and easy to prune; spur-bearer. Good resistance to scab.

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