Description


Originating in Somerset, Beauty of Bath makes a well shaped tree that is hardy everywhere and crops well across the country - although we in the south-west are a little proprietorial about her. Like most early croppers - late July onwards Beauty of Bath apples are best eaten relatively fresh. She is an early flowering pollinator and so needs to be grown in the company of another pollinating or self-fertile apple for both to fruit.

 

Pollination:

It is not self-fertile and needs a pollination partner:

Egremont Russet, Elstar, Granny Smith, Greensleeves, Grenadier, Howgate Wonder, Idared, James Grieve, Katy, Lord Lambourne, Malus Evereste, Red Devil, Spartan, Worcester Pearmain
