Apple Howgate Wonder

Apple Howgate Wonder

A large, long-keeping, culinary apple bred in the early 20th century, Malus domestica Howgate Wonder does best in cooler but drier parts of the country. The fruit is very large, often enormous, with greasy, yellowish-green skin striped and flushed with brownish-red. The white flesh is firm and juicy, with a mild flavour and a good balance of sweetness and acidity; it holds together quite well when cooked, making it good for pies. It can also be eaten as a dessert apple as it sweetens towards the end of its storage period, and is also good for juicing and cider. A vigorous tree, and a heavy, reliable cropper, although it may become a biennial bearer if the fruit is not thinned. Partially self-fertile, it will crop better if a different variety in the same or adjacent pollination group is grown nearby. Apple Howgate Wonder is a spur-bearer, a healthy, disease-resistant tree, although it may suffer from scab in wetter areas. Holds the RHS Award of Garden Merit.
