Malus domestica 'Harry Masters Jersey'

Often known as 'Port Wine', this widely planted vintage cider apple was raised by Mr Harry Masters in Yarlington, Somerset in the late 19th Century. The small-medium sized fruits are flushed dark red and produce a medium to full bittersweet cider with a soft astringency.

Bred in the U.K.  RHS Perfect for Pollinators


Pollination: Group D.


Picking time: late October.


Available for delivery: late November - late April.


 

Cider apples are not usually edible but are grown for the qualities of their juice and tend to be rich in tannins and sugars. The tannins adds bitterness to the cider and the sugar encourages fermentation, giving rise to strength. Cider apples can be divided into four groups based on the characteristics of the juice they produce.
 

  • Sweets are low in both acidity and tannins.
  • Sharps are high in acidity and low in tannins.
  • Bittersweets are low in acidity and high in tannins.
  • Bittersharps are high in both acidity and tannins.


Only a few varieties make a good cider on their own so cider is usually blended from several different varieties to give the best results.

 

We offer a range of traditional cider apples grafted onto MM106 semi vigorous rootstock. Trees will reach a maximum height and spread of 3-4m (10-13ft). To ensure rapid establishment, trees are supplied bare-rooted and will be 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatch. Trees are available from late November to late April.

 

Don't forget to include tree stakes and ties on your order.  All young fruit trees require staking and for better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
