Malus Domestica Sweet Morgan

Sweet Morgan is an unusual cider apple tree because its apples are large and almost golden, quite quince-like from a distance and they ARE sweet. The tree matures quickly and crops prolifically. It is vigorous with strong, upright branches. However it is triploid so cannot fertilise itself or others.

Swing Low, Sweet Morgan

Low in both tannins and acidity, hence its sweetness, these are brilliant for blending with other cider apple juices to sweeten and lighten them for the more modern palate. Its triploid nature means that you will need to plant other pollinating trees for it. Crabapple trees will do the job, but you are half way to making cider, so why not invest in some co-conspirators for a wonderful 21st century cider. At a basic miniumum you will need a bittersharp variety like the wonderfully named Foxwhelp which has the merit of being a pollinator for Sweet Morgan and cropping at the same time. Take a look at the list of Cider Apples we have available and you can find out more about it all on the pages devoted to Cider Apple Chemistry.

Sweet Morgan

No one is quite sure of Sweet Morgan's parentage. Best guesstimates plump for it being a very old Somerset variety - almost certainly over three hundred years old - a measure of its popularity and its indispensability in making cider to this day. Or put it another way - you don't get to be that old without being very good indeed.
