Somerset enjoys bumper cider apple harvest

Cider apple harvest  


A mild spring and autumn, combined with a warm and moderate rainfall have resulted in a bumper cider apple harvest for many Somerset growers. Traditional varieties of Somerset cider apples like Kingston Black, Dabinett and Chisel Jersey have done particularly well at West Croft farm, Brent Knoll.

The nature of cider apple trees is that there cropping becomes increasingly biennial with age – but this year is definitely ‘on’ in Brent Knoll.

Not only is the fruit plentiful it is of excellent quality and with pressing now well underway this years juice will make superb Somerset Cider Vinegar in three years time.

Excellent growing conditions have meant that organic growers, like us, have had far fewer problems to contend with.
