Morgan Sweet apples rule OK

 

01/6/2013

Morgan Sweet is an old Somerset apple variety that has been used in cider making within the county since at least the mid-eighteenth century. They are vigorous trees that are often used as root stock for other cider varieties. Mogans crop earlier – late September – than other traditional varieties of cider apples and therefore they have been traditionally used to fill the ‘cider gap’ between Christmas and the new season’s offerings in February/March. This year blossom on the Morgan Sweets is already a couple of weeks later than usual because of the cold spring. We have put in a couple of new rows of Morgan’s at West Croft farm and the blossom is just showing now. But it looks to be in good nick and we are expecting a heavy crop. We sell a single variety Morgan Sweet cider before Christmas each year and it has proved very popular. Some year’s fruit is short but we are expecting a fine cider in 2013.
