Yarlington Mill

Hailing from (surprise) Yarlington, England, this cider apple is quite unique. Yarlington Mill was said to have first been discovered as a ‘wilding’ in 1898. The tree is high yielding, and was included in many 20th century orchard plantings, though it has a strong tendency to biennial fruiting. The fruit is generally small to medium, globose conical in shape, and red in colour. A typical Somerset ‘Jersey’ type apple, it is classed as a mild ‘bittersweet’. It has a deep and complex flavour when fermented that makes a great one-apple cider. But we like to blend it with some more acidic varieties to add some complexity to the palette. This is a good, solid apple, very commonly used in English ciders.
