Loddington apple


A variety of cooking apple believed to have come from Bath to a farm in Loddington, near Maidstone in Kent, by a young relative of Mr Robert Stone (hence Stone's) around 1820. It was taken up by Mr Lewis Killick, hence yet another name for this apple (Killick's). It cooks to a purée so is good for sauces but also mellow to become a decent eating apple. This mid-season variety is harvested from late September in South-East England and is at its best from October to December.
