Malus Keswick Codlin - Early Season

Description of Keswick Codlin Trees & Fruit:
Pronounced Keswick Codling in some parts, this is a nice dual purpose apple with a long, rather squashed shape and pale green-yellow colour.
When the fruit are well ripe, they are good to eat fresh: soft and juicy with an excellent sharp flavour - great with cheese or diced in a salad.
When cooked, it bakes into a nice soft puree.
The tree has plentiful, very fragrant flowers and is a great pollinator. It's quite fast growing and becomes a heavy cropper with time.

These trees are very resistant to scab, a common problem in damper, humid, western areas of the UK.
