Alfriston apple


A variety of green, acidic cooking apple raised in Uckfield in Sussex in the late 1700s and named after the man who raised it. It was renamed in 1891 and received the Royal Horticultural Society Award of Merit in 1920 by Mr Booker of Alfriston. It cooks to a light purée. This is a late-season apple which can be harvested from early- to mid-October in South-East England and stored as late as April.
