Arthur Turner Cooking Apple Trees

One of the best cooking apple trees for a garden

Arthur Turner apples are perfect for apple sauce, and cook down to a soft, richly flavoured purée. They are also excellent for baking, but a bit too soft when cooked for pies and tarts.
This is an early cropping tree and so the fruit does not store well past about two weeks, but ripening happens over a period of several weeks meaning they can be picked fresh over an extended period. At the end of the season, the fruit has sweetened sufficiently to be eaten straight off the tree.

Great in the Garden

Arthur Turner is special among apple trees in having won an RHS Award of Garden Merit for its flowers. Plant it where it will often be seen in late spring. It is a strong growing variety, not quite up with Bramley, but much bigger than say Laxton's Superb. So once established (give it a head start of 2-3 years) it is a superb host for a medium sized rambling rose.


  • Use: Cooking. Turns to a soft purée. Wonderfully creamy and completely unlike the taste of a Bramley.
  • Training. Because it is a spur bearer, Arthur Turner is suitable for growing as a cordon or espalier.
  • Tree's growth habit: Strong. Upright form.
  • Pollination: Arthur Turner is in pollination Group C. As a partially self-fertile apple, it will produce some fruit all by itself, but the quality and yield is much improved if it is pollinated by another apple tree from pollination Groups B, C or D. Or by a crab apple tree, of course. 
  • Harvest: From late August (in a good year) until October. Apples are best used fresh from the tree or within a couple of weeks of picking.

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

All of our trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks, except for the cordons, which are on M9. These control the size of the tree

Did you know?

Raised by Mr Charles Turner of Slough in the early 1900's as Turner's Prolific, renamed Arthur Turner in 1913 and re-introduced in 1915. Charles Turner was also responsible for introducing a tasty little apple called Cox's Orange Pippin, which has become more than wee bit popular.
