We are fortunate and very pleased to be able to offer stock of this famous, sought after and truly excellent old variety. Norfolk 'Bif fin' as it is known, was popular amongst Norwich bakers and was frequently dispatched to London fruitiers as a great delicacy. The large handsome fruits are dark green heavily flushed with dark mahogany red and may be used from early October. In store they last and last, by March becoming sweet enough for dessert use. Cooked, they are superb for all purposes and seldom need sugar. Stewed, they keep their shape, and is considered THE apple for slow baking, developing a rich and unmistakable flavour, they have been used in the production of apple crisps - and also for cider making. The Trees are fairly vigorous and eager to please with very heavy crops. Some thinning is necessary in years of over exuberance! Highly recommended -although we should not really say this as stocks are only just sufficient for us to list it! We hope to build stocks to more favourable levels in subsequent years. Our grateful thanks to Mrs Mahalsky. Wide range of pollinators are suitable.
