Sweet Alford Apples



Sweet Alford are small-sized (up to 2 inches / 5 cm wide) apples, conical in shape, but flattened.

They have pale waxy yellow skin with a pink flush, with russetting at the stem end.

Inside, they have white, somewhat crisp, juicy flesh with a sweet, mildly astringent taste.

The tree blooms mid-spring.

Cooking Tips

For apple juice or cider.

Juice will be sweet; cider will be mildly bittersweet. In cider, the apple provides a good balance to bitter-sharp apples.
