Harry Masters Jersey Cider Apple is a mid-season bittersweet variety becoming ready late October to early November and is most popular for making a high quality cider.
This cider apple tree produces medium-sized conical apples greatly flushed dark red with sweet and astringent flesh. The apples on younger trees can be somewhat larger. The trees are supplied as one year 'maidens' ideal for training into different forms and supplied on a moderately vigorous rootstock (MM106) reaching up to 5.5m (18ft high).
Like other 'Jersey' varieties Harry Masters arose in Somerset not Jersey and is sometimes known as 'Port Wine'. Said to be named after the Nurseryman who raised it and has been regularly planted because of its good quality cider and reliable cropping. Flowers mid/late May and harvested from late October.

Planting - do not attempt to plant your fruit trees when the ground is frozen or waterlogged. The trees can be stored in their packaging in an outbuilding or garage for 2-3 days, or can be heeled into the soil where the ground is not as frozen. Alternatively, plant up in large pots or containers and ensure the roots have good contact with the soil.
