James Grieve is one of the best apples there is. Early it is a very sharp tasting eater that cooks beautifully - one of the rare apples that can be cut small before cooking yet still hold its shape. As it ripens further it becomes sweeter, milder and softer with a texture not dissimilar to a ripe pear. When you have gorged yourself you can put the remnants of your crop through a juicer to make the best apple juice you ever drank.
Hugely reliable, James Grieve apple Trees- - which were bred in Scotland crop well even in difficult areas. Use September-October. Self fertile and a pollinator - please remember that in the apple world even the most self-fertile apple carries heavier crops if it is cross pollinated by another variety.
