Another great cooking apple I picked last week is the Reverend W Wilks.
I think it's possible to fall in love with these old apple varieties for their name before you've even tasted them!
This is early to mid season apple - pick the beginning of September.
It makes a large cooking apple with a lovely delicate aromatic flavour and cooks to a froth.
The tree is spur bearing (so ideal for cordons or espaliers) and stays fairly compact so great for a small garden, I have this tree growing down my row of cordons and it normally produces a few perfect large apples for me each year. It's in pollination group 2 if you are planning on having a few trees.
Who else has tried this one?
What did you think?
