History and description of James Grieve
Raised by James Grieve in Edinburgh, Scotland either from a Pott's Seedling or Cox's Orange Pippin seedling. Introduced by Dickson's Nursery. First recorded 1893. Received RHS Award of Merit 1897 and a First Class Certificate 1906. Formerly grown commercially in the UK and Northern Europe.
Medium to large, round-conical fruit. Bright red flush over green skin ripening to yellow. Attractive looking. Creamy white, soft, juicy flesh. Quite sharp early in the season when it makes a good stewing apple. Acidity mellows in September and October but it still remains a fairly sharp tasting dessert apple. Bruises very easily. Limited storage life going soft quite quickly. Excellent variety for juice making.
Moderately vigorous, spreading tree. Heavy cropper. Good pollinator. Susceptible to canker and therefore not suitable for growing in humid locations. Otherwise a good garden variety.
