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.
