Coat Jersey Apple Scionwood (Spring 2024)


A traditional English cider apple.

Conflicting accounts of this variety have caused Claude Jolicoeur to speculate that the North American Coat Jersey may not be the same apple as the Somerset Coat Jersey. In either case, the (North American) Coat Jersey is described in Good Fruit Grower (2016) as "biennial and scab susceptible, vigorous." This apple is used predominantly for cider production; it is typically esteemed for fresh eating.

The apple is flattish, small-mid sized, streaked with a splotchy red over a green background. The juice is high in tannin, producing a cider that bright and funky. 

Coat Jersey is named for its birthplace, the village Coat in Somerset, while "Jersey" seems to denote a bittersweet cider apple from Somerset (c.f. Stembridge Jersey, Chisel Jersey, Harry Master's Jersey, etc.).

Clean vs. Regular

Our clean scion is harvested from trees grown on G.16, which is extremely sensitive to viruses. These trees would not have survived if the scion contained viruses. Our clean wood has not been lab tested. Regular = may contain one of the common latent viruses; this is not usually a problem and can be used with most rootstocks.
