Krys

We have used this variety in our cider blends for many years. The tree produces good crops of high brix, high acid, high tannin medium sized apples on a biennial schedule. They drop when ripe and make a slow fermenting, outrageously fruity, high intensity cider.

Description

We don’t know for sure what this variety is, but we suspect it is a M26 rootstock. A long time ago, James trained and pruned these rogue rootstocks just like the other trees in his orchard. Fittingly, he has since forgotten what he had planted and after his brain injury renamed them “Krys”. We have used this variety in our cider blends for many years. The tree produces good crops of high brix, high acid, high tannin medium sized apples on a biennial schedule. They drop when ripe and make a slow fermenting, outrageously fruity, high intensity cider. The tree is the ugliest thing you have ever seen, with copious burr knots and fat gnarled spurs, once it settles down. Before it settles down it grows vigorous, upright shoots with no apical dominance. You have been warned.
