Introduced for our more Northerly customers in response to the huge popularity of our own Norfolk Beefing, which has exceeded all expectations! Hereford Beefing was first known in the 1700's no less and is a variety of great value for gardens today. A moderately sized greenish yellow apple decorated in red flushes and stripes, it has a good sharp flavour at first which sweetens with storage. The flesh turns an attractive bright yellow when cooked, good for dishes where the appearance of the fruit is important - e.g. open tarts etc. Very fine flavour. Pick in early October and use until Christmas. A neat upright, productive tree, the late flowering period ensures useful Frost evasion. A tip bearer, best grown as a bush/tree. Pollinate with Newton Wonder, Ashmeads Kernel, Spartan, Pixie etc.
