All about apples, pears, plums, and cherries - and orchards where they are grown

Hunthouse apple

Hunthouse is a primitive green culinary apple, with a simple acid flavour.  The tree is notably small, but very productive.

Hunthouse originates from the area of Whitby on the North Sea coast of England.  The climate of this area is particularly harsh for growing apples, with a relatively short growing season, fairly low light levels, and strong winds.  Although there are far better apples, few are as hardy or productive in such tough conditions.
