Malus Braeburn – The Braeburn Apple is one of the best known shop bought apples and for good reason. This eating apple is smooth-skinned, crisp and juicy – everything an eating apple should be. The Braeburn Apple tree was originally bred in New Zealand in the 1950s and has been popular ever since. It grows well in Irish gardens producing heavy fruit crops. Perfect for Pollinators because it attracts a variety of pollinating insects with its fragrant blossom.
Malus Egremont Russet – This is an apple that dares to be different ! It is a russet-skinned variety with a dry flesh – a style of apple that has not attracted the attentions of mainstream apple breeders, but nevertheless seems to have a dedicated following. Also, inspite of its unique appearance, Egremont Russet has many of the characteristics which mark out a good apple: a harmony of flavour and texture, and a good balance between sweetness and sharpness.
Malus Elstar – Elstar is a successful offspring of Golden Delicious, it is a popular easy-eating dessert apple, widely grown in Europe . The skin is marbled, often with a soft sheen to it. It also lacks the perfect smoothness of many modern varieties. The underlying colour is golden yellow but overlaid with deep red.The flavour can be more intense than is often the case with other Golden Delicious offspring. It retains the appealing sweetness – usually described as ‘honeyed’ with a real crunch.
