A hardy, self-fertile pear with exceptionally good flavor.
Stembridge Cluster Apple Scionwood (Spring 2023)
A traditional bittersharp cider apple from Somerset, England.
Hardy to zone 4, this tree is precocious and productive. It does tend strongly to biennialism and will need diligent thinning. Stembridge Cluster is susceptible to scab and canker, and very susceptible to fireblight.
The apple is small, green-yellow striped and flushed red. It yields a juice that is sharp to bittersharp, and valued for both baking and cider. Eve's Cidery writes that it is a "good bittersharp that can exhibit petrol qualities."
Stembridge Cluster hails from the cider country of Somerset, England. Somerset and Herefordshire are the two areas traditionally associated with the production of small-batch, artisanal ciders that use heirloom apple varieties.
