Bess Pool Apple (medium)


Bess Pool is one of the latest flowering apples which makes it potentially a suitable pollinator for later flowering varieties (PG5) including the often frustrating cider varieties Stoke Red, Verite and Brown Snout.

Discovered in a wood in Nottinghamshire by Bess Pool. It was first recorded in 1824 and introduced by nurseryman, Pearson, of Chilwell, Nottinghamshire. The late flowering habit can be useful in areas prone to strong spring frost. Fruits have rather dry, slightly coarse-textured flesh with a sweet and pleasant flavour.

  • Pollination Group: PG5 (very late flowering)
