Somerset Redstreak Apple (tall)
Thought to have originated in the Sutton Montis area of Somerset. As a result of its good performance in a 1917 trial at the National Fruit & Cider Institute together with good orchard performance at Burghill, Hereford, it was subsequently propagated to be included in many commercial cider orchards. An important cider variety producing a mild or medium bittersweet cider, pollinated with Brown’s Apple, Kingston Black, Dabinett and Michelin. Vigorous, upright habit. BITTERSWEET
