Description

This is a very significant, historical variety, which we are delighted to be able to offer direct from its source, and named after the hamlet of Hunt House near Goathland, on the North York Moors. This and other local apples were taken on board Captain Cook’s voyages out of nearby Whitby in the 1760s, when it became known that something in them staved off the dreaded scurvy. The apple itself is hardy, yellow-green with bold red markings on the ribs, and (thankfully) stores well! This self-sterile dessert Apple is believed to have originated from Yorkshire, UK before 1760
