Malus domestica 'Kingston Black'

Classified as a 'bittersharp' apple, the English consider it to be the standard cultivar for making a high-quality, single variety cider. A good harvest of medium-size, dark red apples; ripens early October. Don't eat it; cider it!

The mid-late bloom (catagory 4) makes it a good pollinizer for most every apple except the earliest blooming cultivars. May have less tannins in warmer growing regions. High chill: 1000+ hours for best production. Tree tends to remain smaller and exhibits mild vigor.

USDA Zone: 4-9

Grow Height: 13' (Semi-Dwarf)

Sun: Full Sun

Ripening Time: October
