History and description of Yarlington Mill
Yarlington Mill is a cider apple of the Somerset 'Jersey' type. Arose at Yarlington, near North
Cadbury, Somerset, where it was found growing out of a wall near a water mill, probably in the early
1900's. It was transplanted into the gardens of Yarlington Mill and probably propagated by
nurseryman Harry Masters, very soon achieving local fame for its high yields. It was widely
distributed and intensively planted in the orchards of Somerset and the West Midlands. The small
fruit, flushed red over pale yellow, produces a sweet, slightly astringent medium bittersweet cider
having a good aroma and flavour.
