Apple Tree - Pomeroy of Somerset
Origin: Somerset, before 1851
Apple Taste: Rich, aromatic
Flowering Group : 3
Size : Maiden
Harvest : October
Vigour : Medium
Pomeroy apples were famous for their flavour in the 19th century. Hogg recorded three Pomeroys - in Somerset, Lancashire and Herefordshire/Worcestershire - in 1851. They're very old apples; he thought they might have been Norman, which makes sense of the French name ("king's apple"). Pomeroy of Somerset has attractive large apples, and makes for a handsome tree. It's unusual in these parts for not being a cider apple.
We currently have bush plants for sale; these are a year or so older than 1 year old maidens and consequently larger.
