Organic Tydemans Early Worcester Apple is an early dessert apple that produces good sized fruits which are richly flavoured - sweet with a little acidity.
The apples are round or round conical with pale yellow skin that becomes greatly flushed red with purplish crimson stripes. These delicious apples result from a cross between Worcester Pearmain and McIntosh at East Malling Research Station, Kent in 1929 by Mr Tydeman, introduced in 1945 and named much later in 1963. The cross results in an early-season apple which takes after Worcester Pearmain and gets some extra sweetness and juiciness from McIntosh.
This variety is a partial tip bearer so is best avoided for growing as a cordon or espalier. However it is an underrated variety that deserves to be grown more as a quality early apple.
Supplied on Moderate Vigour (MM106) or Semi Dwarfing (M26) Rootstock, the apples are ready to be harvested from mid August and will only keep until mid September.
