Which apple variety?
I have a very mature tree in my garden of our house (c.1930) that I believe to be planted between 1930-1950. The fruit is abundant and healthy but I would like some help identifying its variety - primarily for cider making!
The fruit starts off green and matures to a mix of green and red as shown. The skin is not waxy, but more smooth. There are fine stripes in the skin, with white dots and the taste is quite sweet at first, but then very bitter. I haven't cooked with it yet so I don't know what the pulp is like.
The stem is always short and these are about 70% ready for picking judging by the inside (but a lot of windfall / excess fall at the moment).
Does anyone recognise this variety at all?
