Norland Apples



Norland are medium-sized apples, growing up to 2 1/2 inches (5 cm) wide.

They have pale green skin covered with red stripes.

Inside, they have off-white, slightly coarse, juicy flesh with a sweet taste.

The tree is a hardy, heavy bearer and starts bearing fruit while still young.

The fruit ripens early August.

Cooking Tips

All-purpose for fresh-eating, pies, sauce and cider.

Storage Hints

If picked slightly underripe, the apples can be stored for up to 2 months.

History Notes

Norland Apples were developed from a cross between Rescue and Melba apples done in Canada.
