Annie Elizabeth


Annie Elizabeth is an old-fashioned English cooking apple, possibly a seedling of Blenheim Orange, which it resembles in shape and size, and also in its relatively sweet flavour. It is also an easy variety to grow in the garden, fairly resistant to most of the usual diseases and tolerant of wet mild climates. A notable feature is the attractive blossom.

It is a stout tree with a rather vertical habit, so benefits from tying down of branches to encourage fruiting.

The large fruit stores well but is easily damaged in which case it can rot rapidly.
