Apple Sheep's Nose

Apple Sheep’s Nose

An old English variety, culinary Apple Sheep’s Nose is named for its unusual shape – strongly ribbed with a prominent ‘crown’ like a sheep’s nose. Large, yellowish-green, with a strong pinkish-red mottled flush, its flesh is yellowish, firm and dry with a sub-acid flavour – good for pies because not over-juicy. The tree is moderately vigorous, upright and spreading, and a moderately heavy cropper. Spur-bearer. Not to be confused with the Irish heritage dual-purpose and cider variety Sheep’s Snout.
