Red Falstaff


Apple – National Heritage


Early October



Planting Position


Planted in our Orchard to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III (funded by the Coronation Living Heritage Fund). Trained as an espalier and selected for its hardy nature and tolerance of shaded positions. A sport of the highly regarded and very popular Falstaff, but with a bright ruby red skin colouring This variety has fine eating qualities with a sweet but refreshing flavour and a very crisp texture. It is claimed that this variety is the heaviest cropper of all. An attractive tree with large mauvey pink, red tinged flowers, and the fruits are so ornamental we are told we won't want to pick them! Stores very well, until January or longer.
