A popular old English apple variety, primarily a cooker. Good for making 'Apple Charlotte' as it cooks to a stiff puree. Lovely eaten with cheese, having a nutty, quite sweet taste and a crumbly texture.
Our photo shows a redder-sport called Blenheim Red which was found in 1966.
Blenheim Orange is an exceptionally vigorous tree, growing to a similar size to Bramley's Seedling.
The identification paintings in the USDA Pomological Watercolor Collection span the years 1886 to 1942.
