General description of Dunkertons Late:
This sweet cider apple makes a light, fruit brew by itself, almost good enough to qualify for vintage status. Adding a few other types of apple will round out the flavour and give it more body. These fruit are green when they are young, turning slightly yellow (occasionally with a touch of red, if the winter is sunny) when they are ripe.
All of our Dunkertons Late trees are grown on MM106 rootstocks.
