Description

Vintage 19th century cider variety from the village of Kingston near Taunton where it is locally known as Black Taunton. Small dark maroon-flushed apples produce a superb full bodied cider. Kingston Black has somewhat legendary status amongst cider makers. Its bittersharp juice is of the highest quality, with well balanced tannin and acidity contributing to a full-bodied, distinctive single variety cider. However, it is not the easiest tree to grow; cropping can be shy and it can be prone to scab and canker in the wetter parts of the country.This self-sterile Apple is believed to have originated from Somerset, UK before 1873
