Never Fail apple

/NEH-vuh FAYL/

A name for Margil, a variety of eating apple thought to have been planted in 1680 in a garden at Sheen in Surrey by Sir William Temple, possibly after being brought over from France. By the middle of the 18th century many trees were in the possession of George London of Brompton Park Nursery. It is an aromatic, flushed blushed red apple with some russet which can be wonderful if it gets enough sunshine. This late-season variety is harvested from early October in South-East England and is at its best from October to December.
