Fillbarrel Apple Scionwood (Spring 2023)
An heirloom cider apple from Somerset, England. Also known as Fill Barrel, Bulmer's Fillbarrel.
This is a moderately vigorous tree with a spreading and slightly droopy habit. It is strongly biennial and, like most heirlooms, susceptible to fireblight. This variety is used exclusively in cider production; it is not suitable for fresh eating.
Ripening mid October in NY, the fruit is red striped and flushed over yellow with a fine, attractive russet. The flesh is white with a green tinge and yields a bittersweet juice. (From WSU: Tannin (percent tannic acid: 0.19; Acid (percent malic acid): 0.22; pH: 3.67; SG: 1.045; °Brix 11.2.)
