General description of Ashton Brown Jersey:
This is an excellent, vintage quality cider apple. The ripe fruit have a deep red-purple flush. Please note that this tree, although it makes outstanding cider all by itself, is not ideal for people who only have room for one cider apple tree. Ashton Brown Jersey is slow to begin cropping (it is worth the wait!) and has a natural biennial habit. To be sure of a worthwhile harvest every year, we recommend that you have another, more reliable cider apple tree in addition to this one. If you already have one cider apple tree, then we heartily recommend adding this one to your collection.

Rootstocks:
All of our Ashton Brown Jersey trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks.

Pollination Partners for Ashton Brown Jersey:

Ashton Brown Jersey is in pollination Group F.
This means that they will cross-pollinate with other apple trees in pollination Groups E, F and G.

See our Guide to Apple Tree Pollination for a full list of partners & more tips about pollination.
