Large apples with a greenish yellow skin and very sugary, juicy flesh that has a light, refreshing fruitiness, Morgan Sweet apples are a top choice for the sweet component in a mixed cider. Their growth is vigorous and they swiftly mature into a very high yielding, upright tree. They are especially scab resistant. Their history is unclearoffically recorded in Devon in the 1880's, there are some that say that they are an old Somerset breed, going back 300 years. The fact that there is no record of their parents lends some credibility to the second claim. The fruit are ripe in early to mid September.
Crab apples like the Golden Hornet or John Downie varieties are the way to go if you have several apple Trees- to pollinate or feel at all unsure about choosing a suitable partner. Morgan Sweet flowers in the early part of the mid-season and is therefore a match for the fertile Trees- in the Apple Tree Pollination list described as being in Group A or Group C. It is worth bearing in mind that Morgan Sweet is triploid and so cannot fertilise either itself or other Trees.
This variety is grown on the traditional M25 rootstocks that produce full standard apple trees of 5 metres + in height.
