Description:

 

When picked early, it makes a sweet and delicate stewed apple, but then can be used as a dessert apple.James Grieve is a mid-season variety that is picked in early to mid September. At this stage it is pleasantly acidic and refreshing and if it is too sharp for eating it can be used for cooking.After a few weeks the flavour sweetens and becomes quite mild, and it is then an excellent apple to eat in slices or in hand. The flesh is soft, somewhat like a firm pear in texture.The plants grow well in most soil types, but prefer full sun.

 

Pollination:

It is partially self-fertile.
